If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication 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/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
