The Registration Operations Workshop <regiops.net> (ROW) was conceived as an informal industry conference that would provide a forum for discussion of the technical aspects of registration operations in the domain name system. One purpose of the ROW was to start preparing for the replacement of WHOIS by its successor, the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP), a combined protocol for IP addresses and names registration data. This tutorial provides an introduction to Registration Operations by exploring the history and background of registry operations followed by high-level overviews of the fundamentals of RDAP deployments and Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) extensions.
