If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
