If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
