If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
