Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email is no longer valid.
