If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on 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 edit it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect straight away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup web sites.
