Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for even greater security.

To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code.
