If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.
