Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for better safety.
