Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
