If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared hosting plans, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS websites.
