If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
