If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
