Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
