If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
