If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
