Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers 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 registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
