If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks from the exact same section.
