Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers 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 present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to switch between different platforms, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the very same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
