Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater safety.
