Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo 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 owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with our company with just several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
