If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is not valid anymore.

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP sign on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the current email address isn’t valid, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name right away.
