If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is really easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
