Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from guessing it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not have to switch between different interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks from the very same section.
