Transferring a domain from one company to another typically involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks from the same section.
