If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
