Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
