If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
