Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar company. 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 frequently contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
