If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
