If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
