If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
