If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, 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 may be reset regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different platforms, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like 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to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
