If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.
