If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different tools. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
