Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better security.

To the right of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

In case the currently listed address isn’t valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section.
