If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
