If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS websites.
