If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. In case the current email is not valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
