Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually includes numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
