If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting service, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different Control Panels. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
