Please excuse any inconvenience this may cause.

This applies to our APIs under api.rrpproxy.net, xrrp.rrpproxy.net, and epp.rrpproxy.net. This change has already been made in the OT&E system, and the certificate will be replaced in the live system on February 24 as part of the maintenance work.

2018-02-09.ng & .ai: Available as automated TLDs in February

We are happy to provide you with an automated registration gateway for the following domain extensions in February. Currently, these extensions can only be registered through a manual registration process (Fullfilment TLD).

  • Available third-level extensions: .com.ng, .name.ng, .net.ng, .org.ng, .mobi.ng

  • Available third-level extensions: .com.ai, .net.ai, .org.ai, off.ai
  • Deletion timeframe: 2 days before expiration date

2018-01-22Certificate term reduced to a maximum of 2 years

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.

2018-01-19.rio.br domain names now available

We are pleased to announce that we have just implemented the Brazilian 2nd-level domains .rio.br, representing Rio de Janeiro.

Both natural and legal persons are eligible to register .rio.br domain names. We offer a trustee service if necessary.
