If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
