Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current 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 typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one single place – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you want to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
