If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks from the very same section.
