If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
