If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
