If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is really easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the same place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS sites.
