Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is very easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
