Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
