If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. 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 right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
