If you decide to transfer a domain 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 authentication code from the present registrar company – 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 have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared services, you have registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different Control Panels. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a few clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
