EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP is actually, what it is used for and why it’s crucial for your domain names.
If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a hosting
account with us, getting its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server
account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
