Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even better safety.
