If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its 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email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
