If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one single place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
