Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them periodically for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is stunningly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
