As of March 21, 2022 you have to use the following new endpoints and ports in order to access the OTE environment via APIs:
|OTE API server||old endpoint(s) and port||new endpoint and port|
|OTE HTTP(S) server||api.1api.net:80 + 443|
coreapi.1api.net:80 + 443
api.ispapi.net:80 + 443
|OTE EPP server||epp.ispapi.net:1700||epp-ote.ispapi.net:700|
|SOAP server||soap-api.hexonet.net:8080 + 8082||soap-api-ote.hexonet.net:8082|
|XML-RPC server||xmlrpc-api.hexonet.net:8081 + 8083||xmlrpc-api-ote.hexonet.net:8083|
Unencrypted access is not supported any more (formerly ports 80, 8080 and 8081).
Supported TLDs in the new OTE environment
The following TLDs are supported in the new OTE environment: .asia, .at, .be, .biz, .ca, .ch, .club, .com, .co.za, .cz, .de, .es, .eu, .fr, .guru, .info, .it, .la, .net, .nl, .nz, .org, .pe, .ph, .photo, .pl, .se, .swiss, .uk, .xyz
HEXONET offers access to the domain-robot via a real EPP 1.0 (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) strict to RFC 4930-4933. EPP is the recommended RFC 4930-4933 communication-protocol between Domain-Registars and the respective Registries. With this EPP Implementation you now have access to hundreds of TLDs through one single protocol. In the event that you hold own accreditations then you now also have the possibility of managing your own accreditations through RegistrarOC and connect to them through EPP.
Download: EPP Manual with further information and EPP examples.
See also: EPP access using the Net::DRI perl library We also provide an EPP Demonstrator where you can easily execute EPP commands in our OT&E environment.

This Realtime SOAP Gateway has been developed to provide an easy way to connect existing shopping cart and domain ordering systems to a user account of our system. The gateway consists of a SOAP server that accepts XML requests conforming to a defined syntax and converts them into API calls. All incoming SOAP requests are processed immediately and a XML response is generated and returned to the client.
Download: SOAP-Gateway manual
Download: XMLRPC-Gateway manual As we only offer two SOAP methods: ping for testing, xcall for XIRCA requests, we do not provide a public WSDL file. All XIRCA commands can be obtained in the respective manuals.
SOAP HTTP call parameters:
Server-/Proxy-URL: "http://soap-api.hexonet.net:8080" Namespace/URI: "urn:Api" available Methods: “echo” / “xcall”
SOAP HTTPS (SSL) call parameters:
