Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.
