If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
