If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start 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 misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
