In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to switch between different platforms, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
