This is an annoucement to say that the EPP sandbox hosted by Tucows is
going to shutdown on May 1st. Tucows originally started this sandbox to
foster the growth and development of EPP. We believe that the sandbox
has outlived its usefulness. It is at an early version of EPP -- the
same level as .info today because it is the same code base. With .biz,
.us, .name and others soon, at more up-to-date releases of EPP, the
sandbox is mostly obsolete. We also believe that a large majority of
registrars in this group already have access to many of the current EPP
OT&E environments for the new TLDs.
If anyone has any concerns or questions regarding the sandbox, please
email me directly. If any other registry operators or developers would
like to step in and host a bleeding-edge public EPP server, speak up.
I'm sure there are some on this list who would find this beneficial.
Thanks to all who used and supported the sandbox.
