Namespace URIs

 

When logging in to an EPP session, it is necessary to provide a list of the schemas for the objects to be referenced during the session.

The following schemas can be specified for Standard EPP

  • urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
  • urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0
  • urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:host-1.0

The host schema is imported by the domain schema, so it's not compulsory to specify it. Otherwise, you can only manipulate objects defined by the schemas specified at login.

In order to use an extension, you must also specify (in an <objURI> element) the relevant base schema.
