If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
