If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization 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/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with our company with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
