In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
