What is EPP?

Back to search


Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) provides a simpler means of dealing with domain administration. It is becoming an international standard as the accepted means of communication between Registries and Registrars.

In South Africa, UniForum is the Registry managing the South African based .co.za domain names. UniForum has been using a proprietary ‘Legacy’ system, which requires a parsing of mailings. Although effective, it is time consuming, potentially prone to errors, and outdated in comparison to EPP.

UniForum has adopted the EPP system to ease the process of dealing with co.za domains and their Registrars.
