The .aero registry now operates on the world-standard Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP). The upgrade allows increased flexibility, standardization, and access to a broader distribution channel of ICANN-accredited registrars. In turn, this has lead to a reduction in the price of domain name registrations. For example, the retail price for domain name registration can now be as low as 45 euros.
There has also been a reduction in the time it takes to register a domain name which can now be managed in less than five minutes – thanks to improved DNS speed resolutions.
