If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to switch between different tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks from the same section.
