Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting packages, you have registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
