If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication 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 see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
