If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You won’t need to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
