If you wish to submit the requirements for .ORG accreditation electronically, please contact the Operations Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to Public Interest Registry’s Online Registrar Management System (ORMS). Using ORMS expedites the .ORG accreditation process by allowing most requirements to be submitted online, with the highest security measures in place. Access to ORMS is granted to authorized contacts for ICANN accredited registrars.
If you wish to have someone from our staff contact you, please fill out the form on this link to receive assistance.
During Step 2, you will develop the client application that will allow you to interface with the .ORG Shared Registration System (SRS). The Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) environment is available for you to test your registrar client systems. Public Interest Registry requires registrars to demonstrate the correct operation of their client application by completing the OT&E certification process without errors.
Registrars who have not passed OT&E will not be able to process transactions with the .ORG SRS. Please contact PIR Technical Support to schedule a time slot for OT&E certification.
The .ORG registry deployed EPP v.1.0 on Jan. 15, 2005. Registrars’ clients are required to successfully connect to EPP v.1.0.
