In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
