Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
