If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters 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 changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a Linux shared hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different user interfaces. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
