Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is really easy. You will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks from the very same section.
