If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to 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 there only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
