Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is really easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks from the very same section.
