If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just several mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. 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 you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
