If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols 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 name may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
