Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
