If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP sign to the right of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. In case the current email isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
