If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication 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 additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
