If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else 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 mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In case you want to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP sign next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. If the current email is not valid, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
