If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you wish to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
