If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers 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 additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
