Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized people from cracking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
