If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the very 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 will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
