If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name 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 and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is really easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
