If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
