If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
