Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared plans, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
