Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
