If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain 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 authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of 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 name in question. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.
