Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email right away. If you want to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
