If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
