If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a shared web hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different tools, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
