If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective 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 name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
