If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. 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

In case you’ve got a cloud plans, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us listed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
