If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
