If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one single place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
