If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, 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 registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
