If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
