Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid anymore.
