If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain 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 misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from a single location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
