If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
