If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

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domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
