If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
