If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
