If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.
