If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization 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 & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of 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 you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid anymore.
