In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud plans, you have registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
