If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
