Transferring a domain from one company to another typically involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from breaking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
