If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
