If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company 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 current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse 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 find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect immediately, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
