If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
