If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a Linux web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their 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 ensure that only the domain owner can see this info. In case the currently entered address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
