If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently entered address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
