If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different platforms. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
