If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
