If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different systems, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
