If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some companies 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 authorization code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
