If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS websites.
