If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the exact same section.
