In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

To the right of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
