If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. In case the currently entered address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
