If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one single place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this information. If the current address is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
