If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this information. If the current address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
