If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered 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

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
