If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different interfaces. All you 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 wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
