If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain 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 regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different platforms. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
