EPP access using the Net::DRI perl library

The ISPAPI Registry driver for Net::DRI enables you to connect HEXONET's EPP server and gives you the possibility to manage a wide range of gTLDs and ccTLDs. In addition to the EPP 1.0 compliant commands there is a Key-Value mapping for additional domain related parameters which are required by several registries. The driver also supports all other HEXONET commands like queries for domain and contact lists. It is also possible to access additional HEXONET products like ssl certificates.

Net::DRI support for HEXONET's ISPAPI EPP server has been included in Net::DRI 0.96_01 (DEVELOPMENT RELEASE) which can be downloaded here:
