If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In case you want to edit 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 Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this info. If the current address is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain right away.
