If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one single location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this information. If the currently listed email address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
