A test platform, aka OTE (Operational Test Environment), is provided to allow you to familiarize yourself with the API and test its integration into your system.
This environment is a copy of the production platform. Thus, each operation is processed in the same way and follow the same workflow but, instead of connecting to registries, operations are internally validated.
Conditions of access
The platform is separated from the production, so you must have a test account. Just like your production account, you must Sign-up on our website.
Therefore you receive a new ID specifically on OTE platform.
For the API, the address of the file depends on the version
please check release notes to know current OTE WSDL.
For the web interface, the URL is
We provide two dedicated nameservers for OTE
You can use these nameservers for all domain names and particularly for extensions that need a zonecheck.
Domains are installed within minutes and our script for zonecheck is processed every 15 minutes
The availability check is performed only in our database. Thus a domain you have registered in OTE will returns the correct result or an error if you try to register it again.
Since domains and operations are not initiated to registries, some restrictions are imposed:
- Domain names are not registered in live => They do not work in real.
- Complex Operations such as domainTransferIn and domainTransferTrade can't be processed => these operations are closed
- Some operations requires a successfull DNS test (zonecheck) even in test mode => if you use your own nameservers you must install your test domains onto them
