If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks from the very same section.
