If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
