If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
