If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is no longer valid.
