If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
