If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting service, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the currently listed address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a few clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain right away.
