If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one single location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS websites.
