If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS lookup sites.
