If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain 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 and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different systems, since you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
