Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
