If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
