If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup sites.
