If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, 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 get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
