If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, 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. Some companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD 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 make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. In case the currently entered address is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
