Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain name 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 traditionally contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
