If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different platforms. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
