If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name 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. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
