If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP 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 right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
