If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, 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 call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
