Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized 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

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the very same section.
