Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth 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 domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain 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 frequently includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
