If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
