If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code amazingly 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 will find an EPP button next to your domain names, provided that 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 to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. If the current email address isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
