If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, 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 name may be changed regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of 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 want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
