If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with our company with only several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
