If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, 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 companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address is not valid any longer.
