If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. If the currently listed address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain right away.
