If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new company with the right code.
