If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP 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 correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
