    I am trying to obtain a domain name from a clients ex web designer and have asked for the epp authorization code which I need to initiate a transfer to my hosting account. Should be simple right? This is what he said...

    'If you are transferring it all, just let me know what new IPS tag you want and I'll edit it. The EPP Code or Authcode is only sent to me once a transfer has been initiated for a particular domain. Domain transfers are initiated at the new registrar side.'

    WTF! You cannot initiate a transfer without the epp code so what is he up to and what has an IPS tag got to do with it?

    He also doesnt want to give me access to the back end of the website itself. Whats his game?


    Thanks people and sorry if this is in the wrong section, not sure where this one should go.

    James:)

    Sounds like he's trying to change the nameservers without giving up the domain name.

    he is playing some game
    seems like he doesn't want to transfer the domain that's why he is trying to fool you
    he is asking for IP tags as in name servers so that he can update the new name servers as per your new host and you can use the hosting account without having the domain ownership
    check his registrar and tell him the steps to initiate the transfer

    Thanks for your fast reply. I need the domain transferred so that I can set up a redirect in my own cpanel as at present the domain redirects to his own landing page.
