If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication 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 exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
