Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from guessing it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
