If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
