If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not 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 correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password 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 exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the very same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
