If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is really easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the same section.
