If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can see this information. In case the currently listed email is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
