If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
