If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared website hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit 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 generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
