If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in a different section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
