If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is no longer valid.
