If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
