If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
