If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP 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 correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer.
