Transferring a domain from one company to another typically involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared website hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
