Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current 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 digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
