If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid any longer.
