If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is very easy. You will not need to log in and out of different platforms, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from the same location – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
