Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
