Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.
