If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name 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 and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
