If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. If the currently entered address is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
