If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication 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/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a Linux web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, 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 our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
