If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
