If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email straight away. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different systems. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
