If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, 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 reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
