If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
