If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one 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 transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different user interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
