If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
