If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
