Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from the same location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
