If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
