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