Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name 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 registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different tools, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. If you would like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
