If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one single click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
