In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
