Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly 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 code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the present 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 generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
