Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
