Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers 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 present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a web hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
