If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can see this information. In case the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
