If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain 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 miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different systems, as you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of 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 name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup sites.
