If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
