If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In case you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly 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 done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
