Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
