If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain 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 presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantly, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
