If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
