If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one click, if you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
