Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer 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 unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.
