If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
