If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
