If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
