If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks from the exact same section.
