If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
