Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.
