Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
