Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.
