If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
