Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from guessing it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
