If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In case you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
