Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
