If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared plans, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
