If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars 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 address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different systems. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
