Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.
