If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is very easy. You won’t need to switch between different tools, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS sites.
