Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code 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 domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better safety.
