    .org Registrars
    The Final Benefit of EPP has come to .ORG
    posted by michael on Wednesday September 10 2003, @04:29AM

    dmehus writes "Public Interest Registry, the registry operator for the .ORG generic Top-Level Domain, announced yesterday that .ORG domain names will now resolve and update within five minutes of registration or modification. This is seen by many as the biggest benefit to the newer EPP (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) based registry system. This follows the implementation of the Redemption Grace Period a couple months ago. So, all that appears to be left to do is complete the centralization of all the Whois information from over 100 registrar Whois databases."

    "Edward Viltz, PIR's President and CEO, had this to say, 'Today’s announcement is another significant step in PIR’s commitment to establish a new level of exemplary registry services for our .ORG users internationally. We are now the world’s largest registry to offer registration/modification-to-resolution in less than five minutes. Previously this was an ordeal that took a minimum of 12 hours, often longer. While .ORG is unrestricted, the primary users of .ORG are the members of the non-commercial community. As our customers, the community deserves and will continue to receive leading edge technology and services from PIR.'"

    Not to pick nits, but immediate updates are not, per se, a benefit of EPP. Even an RRP registry could have immediate updates if the data is channeled to the DNS servers in real-time. IOD's first three versions were RRP registries, yet had real-time DNS updates, for example. I know of a few other RRP registries that do the same.

    I think, in this case, what you're seeing is .ORG migrating away from older code in whole. EPP is a benefit as is real-time DNS, but they're reasonably independant of each other.

    Regardless, it's a good move, and they're to be applauded for their efforts and accomplishments.

    If the .org TLD servers have been answering queries for a given name, changes may be reflected from those servers within a few minutes, but that does not mean that the cached records out there in other resolvers will be immediately updated.

    Given the typical TTLs used by TLDs, it can take several days, or even quite a bit longer, for the old values to fade away.

    This is one of the reasons why it is so awful that some registries provide temporary NS records for registered names that do no yet have established name servers - the time to cut over can be longer than one expects. And when it happens it is not a pleasant surprise.
