If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll 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 address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer 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 modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
