If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the 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 miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid any longer.
