Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is stunningly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the very same section.
