If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.
