Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
