Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is very easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks from the same section.
