Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given 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 update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.

If the current email isn’t valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel.
