If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, 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 companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
