If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.
