Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.
