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

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit 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 specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
