Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current domain name 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 traditionally includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them periodically for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
