If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is very easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
