If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
