If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.
