Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to switch between different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks from the very same section.
