Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side 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 dame. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.
