If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
