If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
