If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers 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 authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting plans, you have registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you need 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, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
