Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted 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 present 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 typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
