If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
