If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the same place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

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 get its EPP transfer code with just one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
