Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for better security.

Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name.

If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid any longer.
