If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent 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 won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
