If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email momentarily. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.
