If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name 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 have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to switch between different platforms, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one and the same place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
