If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
