Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting packages, you have registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
