Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater safety.
