If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. 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 sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
