If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
