If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is astonishingly easy.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
