If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
