Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.
