If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP sign next to your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this information. If the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
