If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits 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 additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
