Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud web hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from a single location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.
