If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
