If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
