Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved 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 registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
