If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.
