Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You won’t have to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
