How to get EPP Code from domain registrar?

What is EPP code?
Extensible Provisioning Protocol known as EPP in short is a robust protocol designed to communicate between different domain registrars and domain registries.

What is the use of EPP?

As a end user we need EPP only when we want to transfer our domain name(s) from one registrar to another. Its a sort of authorization code to prevent fraudulent domain transfers and domain hijacking.

Basically I never found a need to learn anything about EPP until last month. Actually what happened is I sold one of my domain ( offcourse at good price) and the buyer asked me to push the domain in his Namecheap account. I have all my domain with Godaddy. So what I did is I transferred my domain to Namecheap account first and then pushed it to buyer’s Namecheap account.

In the whole process of transferring the domain from Godaddy to Namecheap, I got struck at this EPP thing. I initiated the transfer and added the domain in my Namecheap account. Then I saw the message at Namecheap asking for EPP. And trust me, it was so confusing to get that EPP from Godaddy. But finally I managed to get it.
So here is Step by Step guide to get EPP code from Godaddy.

Step 1: Login to your Godaddy account. They have recently changed the looks of their account main page and now it looks like this. (click to enlarge the image)

Step 2: Now look for domains drop down menu in upper left corder and select the option of  ‘My Domains’ from it. (click to enlarge the image)

Step 3: This will take you to the page where all your registered domains are listed. Click on the domain name (click to enlarge the image)

Step 4:  Now search for the option ‘Authorization Code’., and click ‘Send by Email’. (click to enlarge the image)

Step 5: You will get a confirmation screen message. Click ok and you are done. Make sure the administrative email id on Godaddy account is correct and accessible.

You will get the requested EPP code in your mail box ( email id listed as administrative email in Godaddy account) with in few minutes. (click to enlarge the image)

Godaddy is one of the best domain registrars in industry. But no one likes it when a client take their business away from them. Same is the case here. Godaddy (and other domain registrars) will try their best to stop you from transferring the domain(s) to other domain registrar. So make sure you don’t give them any reason to cancel your transfer. Any mistake from your part will lead to cancellation of domain transfer.

Here are some more tips for a smooth domain transfer from Godaddy to other registrar.
1) Make sure your domain is unlocked before before starting the process of transfer.
2) If you have opted for the option of domains by proxy, cancel it before initiating the process.
3) Godday knowledgebase clearly states that
ICANN regulations prohibit transferring a domain name that has been registered or previously transferred within the last 60 days.
So dont try to transfer the domain if it do not qualify the above criteria. The transfer will be denied for sure.

There is a good read about this on ICANN.org.

Hope this post help you. I will keep this updated.
If you have any question, drop me a comment and I will try my best to help you.

Technorati ranking system is down

Technorati is facing some bug in its ranking system. As for now almost every blog claimed on technorat is ranked number 1.
I think they are making some changes in their rank system.
In the screenshot below you can see that this blog is ranked 1. :D

End of JohnCow.com. Is it a linkbait?

JohnCow.com has come to end. The post on their blog says that they have to close the blog because of legal threats.

JohnCow.com is parody of a popular blog JohnChow.com and was rocking the blogsphere since last one month.

I personally think thats its a proper case on linkbaiting (see I have given them a linkback :D )
The owner of JohnCow.com is member of Digital Point forums. Two weeks back he tried to sell his site on Digital Point forums (here is that sales thread). Again that was a shear inkbait.

Also I must say JohCow.com was a great hit. This blog earned $1000+ just with investment of $80. Yes the owner of blog bought the domain for $80 (source of info).

Whatever the truth will be out in couple of days. Lets see how far this goes.

Digg Algorithm is getting complex.

Now this is something which I never know about digg. As per my knowledge a story on digg can be made popular (in other words getting to front page of digg) only with in 24 hours of its submission to digg. If a submitted story fails to reach front page with in 24 hrs of its submission, it dies its natural death.
But Tamar Weinberg of Techipedia reported that a story submitted by her 7 days ago is made popular today and is on front page digg with 942 votes (at the time of writing this post)
Here is that digg story.

Digg has got a legendary status among the sites of its type. A story gets several thousands hits in a day if made popular on digg. Because of this, digg has been a continuous target of webmasters. There have been several attempts to game digg like this one and this one.

Now as I can see, digg algorithm is getting more and more complex. I never expected that a dead story can reach to front page. The possible reason for this can be the multiple attempts to submit the same story by different users .
Seems like the number of attempts to submit the story by different readers is also taken into account by digg.
Anyways, digg algo is getting better, and we can expect great quality from digg.

Cheers.
