In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud plans, you have registered a domain with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
