If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
