If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a shared website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
