If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with several clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
