The ISOC-IL API System introduces an interface between Accredited Registrars (ARs) and the .il ccTLD registry. This interface is available exclusively to ARs, who use it to perform the entire set of functions against the Domain Name Registry (new name registration, modifications and deletion of names, querying the status of names etc.).

This document specifies the technical elements of the interface to the .il API System. The system uses elements of the EPP protocol family, although it is not a standard implementation of EPP, nor does it claim compliance with EPP or RRP.

ARs should use this document (or its subsequent versions) to develop their interface to the system (client side). ISOC-IL will make an effort to make future versions of this specification backwards-compatible, however such compatibility is not guaranteed.
