Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer 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 mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for better security.
