Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different platforms, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
