Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even better security.
