If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
