If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
