If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared web hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to switch between different platforms, since you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the very same place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 just a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit 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, this button will be there only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
