If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin consoles, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different platforms. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
