Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly 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 code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater safety.
