If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse 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 have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. In case the currently listed address is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
