If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
