In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared initially is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
