A domain name, a series of textual characters that identifies a specific IP address, uniquely identifies a website on the Internet. Domain names locate businesses, organizations, or other entities on the Internet. Using a domain name allows you to receive more visitors, less bounced emails, and the chance to make an impression.
Transfer secret, also known as EPP Code, is a randomly generated complex code by a domain registrar which can contain numbers, letters and special characters. Registrars are only permitted to provide the code to the registered owner of the domain as it appears on a whois query..
If you want to transfer your .com, .net, .biz, .us, .org or .info domain, you will need to contact your current registrar and request the domain's Authorization Code (also referred to as an auth code, Authinfo code or an EPP code). An authorization code is usually a 6- to 16-character code assigned by the registrar. Authorization codes are basically a password for the domain serving as an extra security measure. The auth codes ensure that only a domain owner can make domain name transfers. The Registry requires the Auth Code so for .COM, .NET, .BIZ, .US, .ORG, and .INFO domains you will not be able to continue a transfer until you are able to get the Authorization Code from your current registrar.
