If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email is no longer valid.
