If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will 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 modify the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid anymore.
