- First, you must complete a certification test, which can be done by email; and then
- a technical test, which can be performed either through the EPP or the registrar's portal via the web interface. Before completing the technical test, you should take a look at our test environments to know the various interfaces and services.
- test can be done in Estonian or in English.
The certification test consists of 10-12 questions that check the knowledge of the potential registrar of the two most important documents for the .ee registrar - the .ee Domain Regulation and the Registrar Contract with the annexes. The purpose of the test is to ensure that the applicant team has a person(s) who has acquired sufficient knowledge of both the general functioning of the domain market and the .ee Regulation and the registry system. It takes 90 minutes to complete the certification test. The test has been successfully completed if 70% of the questions are answered correctly.
Upon successful completion of the certification test, the potential registrar must also pass the technical test either through the EPP or the Registrar's portal via a web interface. The test checks whether the applicant is able to create commands for all registry operations and pass them to the registry test server. The technical test includes exemplary tasks for all registration services and more frequently performed operations. For example, creating contacts and domains, querying information, changing domain contacts and name servers, reading polls, etc.. Tasks presented in the test must be carried out as a whole and we assume that the registrar is already convinced of the ability of his system to communicate with the .ee Registry system or can use the Registrar portal, the operations themselves should take a relatively short time, certainly not more than a few hours.
