Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. 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 ordinarily includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
