Info registrar[Link]


to obtain registrar account information.

This command gives the registrar the possibility to verify in an automated fashion:

  • the account status.

  • the ‘hitpoint’ counter.

  • the moment when the registrar will be deblocked (‘blocked until’).

The registrar info command is composed according to the standard EPP syntax. Some components need further explanation:

  • <registrar version=”1.0”/> currently only version 1.0 is supported. It’s not necessary to mention the version as it defaults to “1.0”.


info registrar command:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
     <registrar:info xmlns:registrar=""/>

In the response you see the hitpoint status and account status:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" xmlns:registrar="" xmlns:dnsbe="" xmlns:xsi="">
    <result code="1000">
      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
            <dnsbe:nbrPromoCreditsAvailable xsi:nil="true"/>

The following information can be seen in the reply:

  • <amountAvailable> is the amount of money left in the registrar account which can be used to perform paying transactions on the registration system.

  • <hitPoints> contains information about the hitpoints:

  • <nbrHitpPoints> current number of hitpoints

  • <maxNbrHitPoints> the maximum number of hitpoints allowed

  • <blockedUntil> the date and time in UTC until when the account is blocked. This is only visible in case the registrar has exceeded its number of hitpoints

  • <dnsbe:nbrPromoCreditsAvailable> contains the number of promo credits available if there are any.
