If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
