If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. 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 Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice 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 in question. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.
