If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
