If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
