If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email right away. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
