<![CDATA[.travel Industry Acknowledgement]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#470 The .travel TLD migrated to Neustar’s registry platform. The main change is the introduction of a Travel Industry Self-Acknowledgement for registration. This means that the registry supports now two methods of providing eligibility evidence from which you may choose to use:

  • Method 1: UIN – Submit a Unique Identification Number (UIN).
  • Method 2 (NEW): Submit a Travel Industry Acknowledgement that the registration is for a registrant who is a member of the travel industry.

More details can be found in our Knowledge Base.

Please note: Fulfillment TLDs can be managed via API and web interface just like any other TLD. However, the registration process is manual and might involve documents and is thus not managed in real time. If you activate one Fulfillment TLD, all other Fulfillment TLDs are activated as well. The corresponding appendix is the same for all of them. Benefit from this approach and add a whole bunch of exotic TLDs to your portfolio at once.

<![CDATA[Certificate term reduced to a maximum of 2 years]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#454 We would like to inform you about the upcoming industry-wide abolition of certificates with a term of three years.

The CA/Browser Forum has approved Ballot 193 which reduces the maximum validity period (or "lifetime") of Domain Validated (DV) and Organization Validated (OV) SSL/TLS certificates from 39 months to 27 months (825 days). This is an industry-wide change that must be implemented by all Certificate Authorities.

Thus, as of February 20, 2018, it will no longer be possible to order DV or OV SSL certificates with a term of three years. As a result, we will remove all 3-year prices from our system.

Important note: If you currently have a certificate that is valid for three years or more, it should continue to work as usual for the rest of the certificate's term and no action is required.

All SSL certificates of these brands will thus be issued underneath the Digicert PKI (Public Key Infrastructure). This step was necessary after Google had announced to distrust all SSL certificates of the Symantec product group, showing them as invalid in the Google Chrome browser. More information about this change are available here in our wiki.

Reissues for old Symantec SSL certificates necessary:

  • Certificates issued BEFORE June 1, 2016: These will be distrusted by Google Chrome on March 15, 2018 (= release of Chrome 66). To prevent the distrust a reissue under the Digicert PKI is necessary. This can be done starting December 1, 2017. For reissues there's only time UNTIL March 15, 2018. Afterwards Google Chrome will display errors.
  • Certificates issued BEFORE December 1, 2017: These will be distrusted by Google on September 13, 2018 (= release of Chrome 70). To prevent the distrust a reissue under the Digicert PKI is necessary. This can be done starting December 1, 2017. For reissues there's only time UNTIL September 13, 2018. Afterwards Google Chrome will display errors.

<![CDATA[.id 2nd lv registrations: automation & price reduction]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#445 .id (Indonesia) second-level domain name registrations and transfers-in are now available as automated processes. So far, these transactions have been handled by our fulfillment team. As part of the automation, we can offer you these transactions at a lower price!

In addition, the restrictions on .id second-level domain registrations have recently been lifted. The requirements for local presence and the need to provide proof for validation are no longer applicable. .id domains can now be registered by any individual or company in any country.

Please note that .id third-level domain registrations (e.g. .co.id) remain unaffected by these changes.

<![CDATA[.is now available as automated TLD]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#429 We are happy to announce that the .is registration gateway is now available fully automated. This results in some simplifications. Upon registration for example, the domain owner no longer receives an e-mail in which the creation of the contact handle by the registry must be confirmed.

Moreover, we were able to reduce the standard pricing for .is registrations!

.is is the ccTLD of Iceland. More details about the registration and management of .is names can be found in our TLD wiki.

See TLD wiki

Background of these changes is the migration of the .asia registry system to the new Afilias Shared Registry System and the update of the .asia Charter Eligibility Declaration Requirement Policies.
