Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name 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. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better safety.
