If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
