If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some 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
If you have a Linux shared web hosting
, you have registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several mouse 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 us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
