If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve 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 administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can get this information. If the currently entered address isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
