If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email isn’t valid anymore.
