Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned 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 provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Some companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.
