If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In case you want to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
