If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar company – 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 get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different systems, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
