If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need 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 authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this information. If the currently entered email is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain straight away.
