Extensible Provisioning Protocol
|Internet||IP ( IPv4 , IPv6 )|
The Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) is a flexible network protocol for creating objects in the registration databases of the Network Information Centers (NICs). B. is used for domain registration and domain transfer .
The protocol is the result of the Provisioning Registry (provreg) working group of the IETF and was completed in 2004. The motivation for creating EPP was the need for a robust and flexible protocol for transactions between the NICs and the DNS registrars. Such transactions always take place when a domain name entry is newly registered, extended, changed or deleted. Before EPP, the registration databases did not have uniform interfaces .
