If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
