If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, 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 symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks from the very same section.
