If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP 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 obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols 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 name may be altered 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 Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from a single location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different Control Panels. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
