If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to switch between different systems, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the exact same section.
