If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names 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 will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so in case the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.
