Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

In case the currently listed address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section.
