If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is incredibly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
