If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see 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 domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid anymore.
