If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.
