If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
