If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
