If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
