If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid anymore.

If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. If the currently entered email address is not valid, you can update it with several mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
