If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different platforms. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
