The EPP Gateway provides a strict RFC EPP compatible protocol for .ST ccTLDs.
ST Registry provide both – sandbox access for testing purposes and production environment for working with live registrar repository.
Access to both platforms can be obtained from the registrar console.
The Gateway handles nameserver hosts as objects. nameserver as attribute is not supported.
The Gateway also supports additional extensions:
- Domain collections. Used to fetch registrar domain repository.
- Registrar extension. Used to fetch registrar and billing details (including registrar balance).
- WHOIS Privacy extension. Used to setup domain contacts masking. According to ST Registry terms of service – registrant/registrar is obligated to provide real contacts information for domains and keep it up to date, however ST Registry provide possibility to mask/hide such details in WHOIS responses and any other public catalogs.
