If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one single place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
