If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
