If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
