EPP specifications for registrars
Once the new domain rules have come into effect, all domains, over time, will be registered with registrars who will offer users all of the services needed to handle a domain. To make all of this possible, all of the registrars are connected to the central registry for information exchange, so every registrar has the newest information available at any time. In order to achieve this, the Estonian Internet Foundation has released the specifications of the EPP standard used throughout the world for this type of transaction and will deal as a communication language standard between the aforementioned connections to the registry. The EPP specification can be downloaded from the registrar subpage http://www.eestiinternet.ee/eng/registrars/registrar-epp-information.

.ee will update the Domain Regulation due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entering into force on the 25 May 2018. .ee Domain Regulation provides standard terms that regulate the legal relationship between the EIF, domain registrant and registrar (service provider). Main changes concern the WHOIS-service in which the contact information of a registrant who is a natural person can no longer be publicly disclosed.
The Estonian Internet Foundation has received multiple complaints from .ee domain registrants concerning the registration service provided by Beehosting OÜ, assuming that the company is an accredited .ee registrar. While third persons are not prohibited from selling .ee domains, the Foundation can only help users if the company concerned is an accredited .ee registrar.
