If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
