Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them periodically for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
