2016-12-19.travel: Restrictions for .travel domains relaxed

The .travel registry changed their policies and lowered the registration restrictions. .travel domain names are now available to everyone who provides or plans to provide services, products or content in or to the travel industry. New travel startups are welcome, and that includes every new travel content provider. Before this policy update, only licensed travel businesses were eligible to register a .travel domain.

In order to complete a travel registration, a UIN (Unique Identification Number / Member Number) is still required. But the registry simplified the eligibility review. Registrants get their approved UIN now immediately at the registry. The registrants must fill in the form on the website and get their Member Number automatically.

2016-12-19.ru: Important changes for transfers

Please note the following important changes for .ru domain transfers.

  1. Internal .ru transfers (transfers within the RU-Center) must be processed via our NEW REG  effective January 24, 2017. Internal .ru transfers remain free of charge!
  2. External transfers are subject to a charge and can be processed automatically effective January 24, 2017. The registry has recently changed their transfer procedure: No documents are required any more for external transfers; they can be processed automatically by using an authcode. External transfer means that a .ru domain which is managed outside the RU-Center should be transferred to the RU-Center.

More details about the .ru can be found in our TLD wiki.

2016-09-26Available now: .radio.fm & .radio.am

We are glad to announce that you can register domains under the following domain endings via RRPproxy as of now:

2016-08-31.uk: New optional extensions as of September 12

We will introduce two new optional extensions for .uk domains on September 12, 2016:

  • X-UK-OWNER-CORPORATE-NUMBER: UK's companies house registration number
  • X-UK-OWNER-CORPORATE-TYPE: LTD | PLC | LLP | IP (type of company)

The transmission of X-UK-OWNER-CORPORATE-NUMBER is possible for all new registrations (AddDomains) and domain changes (ModifyDomains) of .uk second- and third-level domains, if a new P-Handle is used and the domain owner is a company/organization from the UK. The use of the extension X-UK-OWNER-CORPORATE NUMBER requires the specification of the type of company with the extension X-UK-OWNER-CORPORATE-TYPE.

2016-08-29.fi: Important changes as of September 5

The internationally known registry-registrar model will be brought into use for .fi domains on September 5, 2016. As a consequence, all domain name holders that manage their domain name themselves need to move to a registrar. Please note that .fi domain names cannot be modified or renewed between September 2 (13:00 UTC) and September 5 (7:00 UTC) due to this transition.
 
The current restrictions regarding place of residence and age will be abolished. Foreign companies, organisations and private persons can obtain an .fi domain name. Domain names that consist of a combination of a person's first and last names can be freely registered. In the future, the new policy does not require that a domain name must have functional name servers at the time of its registration.

Moreover, the Finnish registry services will be available via EPP. Thus, we will offer .fi as an automated TLD via our own accreditation. This fact enables us to reduce the standard pricing for .fi registration as of September 5.

Although there are no more restrictions for .fi registrations, the registry still demands several extensions. For more details please see our RRPproxy Wiki.


On September 7 at 10:00 UTC, several 2-character .fi domains will be released for registration at standard pricing. You can find the list of domains that will be released here.

  • The initial contact details of the new domain (owner, admin and technical contacts) will be the same the origin domain had when it was registered.
  • The contact details could be changed after the domain is registered according to the policy of the registry.
  • If a domain does not include a letter ñ, the domain will be activated once it is requested and registered.
  • If a domain includes a letter ñ, the domain will stay in the status pending for review. Allocation will be decided once this stage is finished.

A domain name (origin domain) may generate one or more new domains with special characters according to the following Rules of Derivation:

  • Letter a can be replaced by the character á
  • Letter e can be replaced by the character é
  • Letter i can be replaced by the character í
  • Letter o can be replaced by the character ó

2016-05-09.eu in Cyrillic characters: What will change?

On June 1, 2016, EURid will launch the new extension .ею, the .eu top-level domain in Cyrillic. All .eu policies, procedures, features, and price structures will also apply to the Cyrillic string .ею.

At the same time, EURid will fully enforce the basic rule that the second-level script must match the script of the TLD extension (.eu, .ею). In other words, if the registrant wants to register the string abc, he must take abc.eu (with the Latin TLD extension). If the whished domain name is in Cyrillic script, the script at the top-level must be .ею (Cyrillic string). A registrant wishing to register an exclusively numeric domain name - possibly including hyphens - can use both TLDs.

This means that the current domain names registered in Cyrillic characters under .eu (Latin string) will undergo a "script adjustment phase": All Cyrillic domain names will be "cloned", a process where the Latin extension is replaced by the Cyrillic extension, and all linked contacts are copied. Name server information and DNS key information will not be copied, as this information depends on the DNS setup of the registrar. The original and cloned domain names will co-exist for a period of three years, and can be maintained independently of one another. During this script adjustment phase of three years, registrants will not have to pay for cloned domain names. The switch ("cloning") will be made under EURid’s supervision during a maintenance window when .ею goes live on June 1.

Please note: As a consequence of this change, it will not be possible to register new domain names in Cyrillic script under .eu (Latin string) any more as of June 1.

More details can be found at the .eu Registry.

2016-03-15New feature: PremiumDNS including Anycast

We would like to inform you about the introduction of a new feature for our KeyDNS zone management: PremiumDNS including Anycast.

Using PremiumDNS activates Anycast for your DNS zone and automatically duplicates and publishes your resource records across the global network of our partner Dyn. Dyn’s global Anycast network which has 18 points of presence including locations such as India, Brazil, Sydney, and Hong Kong, assures high site availability and low latency resulting in a superior user experience for your site visitors. Benefit from these advantages:

  • Speed: By utilising Anycast DNS you will drastically lower your website's loading time. When users send out DNS queries, they are sent to the closest name server node.
  • Redundancy: Because traffic will find the best path, even in the event a node goes offline traffic will automatically flow to the next closest node.
  • Stability: In addition to speed, using Anycast means the network is extremely resilient as it is harder to launch attacks against multiple network locations that are dispersed.

In this scenario our KeyDNS infrastructure serves as hidden primary server and the Dyn network as Anycast secondary name server set. The feature is optional and can be configured during adding or modifying a DNS zone.

More details can be found in our RRPproxy Wiki.

The .pharmacy TLD intends to provide a secure and trustworthy namespace where consumers around the globe can be sure the medications they buy online are safe. Eligible to register are pharmacies and pharmacy-related organizations that meet the .pharmacy program standards.

Before you can submit your registration request, your application must be approved by NABP (National Association of Boards of Pharmacy). Entities wishing to obtain .pharmacy domain names will be required to pay an application fee to NABP of 2,000 USD per website review. Please note, the fee is per website review, not per requested .pharmacy domain name and is payable to NABP at the time of application and each year upon renewal. The application review process is expected to take 60 days in most instances.

If your organization meets the program standards, NABP will grant your organization a secure, electronic token of approval. You will need to submit this token to us via the extension X-ALLOCATION-TOKEN in order to register the domain.

Organizations that have been granted a .pharmacy domain must re-apply with NABP and re-register with us annually. Please note that the registration of a .pharmacy domain is a non-realtime process and takes a minimum of two business days since we provide registrations via a partner registrar (please refer to the .pharmacy appendix).
