Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from cracking it. Some companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different platforms, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
