If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantly. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
