If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only 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 send the code to the registrant’s email right away. In case you want to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you will not need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
