If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
