A while ago we already reported that the .gay extension was coming. Now it’s finally time. And .gay seems to have everything to conquer the world. Short, powerful, clear and they also do charity.
Ho ho ho, it’s that time of year again. We would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
May 2020 be
vibrant and sparkling,
radiant and gorgeous,
healthy and happy,
carefree and beautiful!
We all know that DNS security is necessary these days. That is why DNSSEC was developed.
DNSSEC adds data integrity to the domain name system, to prevent forge false, altered or incomplete data.
“The name is Bond, James Bond.” Even if you are not a James Bond fan, you undoubtedly know this one-liner. And that alone indicates that your name will be remembered under .bond.
Partytime! We exist 20 years. Yes, you’re reading it correctly, 20 years. So we bundled 20 little facts about us to share with you. How well do you know us after 20 years? And who knows, maybe you’ll get to know us even better after reading this.
A while ago we already informed you that NIC.ar (Argentina) considered to allow registrations under .ar directly. Well it looks like the decision has been made. Registrations under .ar are possible from now on. NIC.ar follows in the footsteps of for example Nominet (.uk-registry) which also liberalised registrations under .uk a while ago.
Afilias, the registry for .info, .bet, .pink,… introduces the registry lock for all 28 extensions they manage. This registry lock, not to be confused with the transfer lock, is an extra security that you can activate to protect your domain name.
DNS-LU (.lu registry) reached 100,000 registered .lu domain names last week. A milestone for this extension.
Top Level Design (the .gay-registry) communicated that the .gay release will be postponed until 2020. Originally .gay would have gone live October 19th 2019, coming out day, but this won’t happen.
EURid (.eu-registry) has announced that from October 19th 2019 onwards, it will be possible for all EU citizens to register a .eu domain name regardless of their residency.
