If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered 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 Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
