If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. 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 extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as 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 authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
