If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
