If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
