Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current domain name 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 commonly includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same place – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just need 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 email the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
