If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
