Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is extremely easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
