In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
