If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different user interfaces. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
