If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
