If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present 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 get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
