If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. In case the current address is not valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
