Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present registrar. 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 often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
