If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid any longer.
