If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
