If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side 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 given domain. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
