Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
