Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from a single place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.
