If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, 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 altered regularly. Some companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared plans, you’ve registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
