If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name 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 mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
