If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
