If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single click, in case you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
