If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a website hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
