<![CDATA[.uk Right of Registration: Applications possible as of June 12]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#502 We would like to remind you that the .uk Rights of Registration period is about to end. When .uk was introduced 5 years ago, many existing customers owning a .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .ltd.uk, .plc.uk, or .net.uk domain were granted a preferential right to their equivalent .uk name.

These rights will expire on June 25, 05:00 UTC. Interested parties may check on this page if a right of registration is available for a specific .uk domain.

Unclaimed .uk domains will be released to the public in July - Applications possible!

All domains with rights that were not registered by the rights holder will be put into five batches in alphabetical order. These batches will be published in advance. Each batch will be released at 13:00 UTC from July 1 to July 5, 2019. All domains in a batch will become available at the same time. Once the domain has become available during the release period it will remain available throughout the release period. Domains that are not registered will become generally available one week after the start of the respective batch.

  • Batch 1: Domains beginning 0-9, a-b (starting July 1)
  • Batch 2: Domains beginning c-f (starting July 2)
  • Batch 3: Domains beginning g-m (starting July 3)
  • Batch 4: Domains beginning n-s (starting July 4)
  • Batch 5: Domains beginning t-z (starting July 5)

<![CDATA[DNS Flag Day on February 1]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#496 On February 1, leading vendors of DNS software (e.g. BIND, PowerDNS, Unbound) and major public DNS providers have dropped support for several non-standard workarounds and implement a stricter handling of the Extension mechanisms for DNS (EDNS).

The change may cause some domains to malfunction because the (name) servers are affected. The DNS Flag Day website offers domain holders the opportunity to check their domain(s). The tool ednscomp also offers the possibility to test a DNS server directly and provides a detailed technical report.

Even after this change there is no obligation to support EDNS. However, DNS servers that do not have EDNS support must respond correctly to such requests and ignore the EDNS extension fields.
