Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain 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 unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
