Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure 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. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better security.
