If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition 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 give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. If the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
