If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain 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 security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
