Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner 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 started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
