If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log into 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. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
