If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
