Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them periodically for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all active domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
