If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
