If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
