<![CDATA[Maintenance for DigiCert, GeoTrust, Thawte, RapdidSSL products]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#535 Due to a change in our backend for DigiCert, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapdidSSL certificates we will have a maintenance on August 18, 2020 from 09:00 CEST - 11:00 CEST.

The management of SSL certificates of these brands will not be possible during this timeframe. Commands will not be queued, but responded to with an error message. Orders that are still open at the beginning of the maintenance will be delayed and will be finished after the maintenance work. However, we do not expect that many certificates will be affected.

Technical Changes for SAN certificates as of August 18, 2020, 13:00 CEST: We will introdue the possibility to specify a separate approver email address per SAN certificate. This change affects the commands AddCertificate, RenewCertificate, ModifyCertificate and ReissueCertificate. For testing purposes the changes have been already published in our OT&E environment. Please read more here in the RRPproxy Knowledge Base.

<![CDATA[Two-year SSL/TLS certificates will phase out as of Aug 18]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#536 Beginning August 18, 2020, we will only be issuing SSL/TLS certificates with a life time of one-year.

The reason is an industry-wide requirement set by Apple, Google and Mozilla stating that any two-year TLS certificate issued after August 31, 2020 will be distrusted in their browsers.

As a consequence all Certificate Authorities (CAs) will start issuing publicly-trusted SSL/TLS certificates with a validity period of one year starting September 1, 2020. We decided to stop offering 2-year SSL/TLS certificates already as of August 18.

Affected are all SSL/TLS product brands we currently offer: Sectigo, DigiCert, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapidSSL.

<![CDATA[.place: Removal of registration requirement]]> https://rrpproxy.net/News.html#531 Great news: The requirements needed to register a .place domain name will be removed.

Effective June 1, 2020, registrants can register a .place domain name without additional steps; they will also no longer be forwarded to a third party to activate their domain.

This means that .place domain registrations will be possible using the regular AddDomain command.

    UPDATE from March 12: The .ar registry is still unresponsive. Apparently all .ar extensions are affected including .AR, .COM.AR, .NET.AR, and .ORG.AR. We're waiting for more information from the registry.


    Unfortunately the .ar registry had to temporarily suspend .ar domain registrations due to technical difficulties.

    This process does not interfere at all with the records already granted or in process.
