If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
