If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. If the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
