If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different tools. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
