Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.
