If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
