If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
