If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits 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 safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting service, you have registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a separate section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS websites.
