If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need 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 emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid any longer.
