Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
