Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them periodically for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so in case the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks from the same section.
