If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret 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 surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the very same place – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
