If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. 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 and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
