Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
