New features: IDN autodetection and QueryIDNTagList


08.02.2017 16:55

We have recently implemented two new features regarding IDN language tags: IDN autodetection functionality and QueryIDNTagList command.

1. Using the CheckDomain command without X-IDN-LANGUAGE:

For certain TLDs it was necessary to specify the IDN language in order to perform a CheckDomain command (e.g. Afilias TLDs). This is no longer necessary since the language is recognized automatically (IDN autodetection).

2. Get the available IDN language tags for a domain name or a TLD:
The new QueryIDNTagList command can be used to determine the available IDN language tags for a domain name or a TLD.

Examples for Query IDN language tags by domain and by zone:

[COMMAND]
command = QueryIDNTagList
domain = xn--ztt861fbie.org
EOF
[RESPONSE]
code = 200
description = Command completed successfully
property[idn language tag][0] = ZH-CN
property[description][0] = Simplified Chinese
property[idn language tag][1] = ZH-TW
property[description][1] = Traditional Chinese



[COMMAND]
command = QueryIDNTagList
zone = info
EOF
[RESPONSE]
code = 200
description = Command completed successfully
property[idn language tag][0] = DA
property[description][0] = Danish
property[idn language tag][1] = DE
property[description][1] = German
property[idn language tag][2] = ES
property[description][2] = Spanish
...



New Fulfillment domain extensions available as of now!


08.02.2017 16:52

We are pleased to offer you the following Fulfillment TLDs as of now:

.kg (Kyrgyzstan)
.sd/.com.sd (Sudan)
.gt/.com.gt (Guatemala)
.ni/.com.ni (Nicaragua)

Please note: Fulfillment TLDs can be managed via API and web interface just like any other TLD. However, the registration process in the back-end is manual and might involve documents and is thus not managed in real time. If you activate one Fulfillment TLD, all other Fulfillment TLDs are activated as well. The corresponding appendix is the same for all of them. Benefit from this approach and add a whole bunch of exotic TLDs to your portfolio at once.


.eco: Binding applications possible now


08.02.2017 16:51

Understood around the world, the word "eco" means environment.

Created with the support of over 50 environmental organizations from around the world, .eco is the domain extension backed by the environmental community.

The .eco system includes a .eco domain name, .eco profile and .eco trustmark so the domain holders will instantly be recognized for the good work they do in support of the planet.

Launch schedule:

Sunrise: From February 1 (16:00 UTC) until April 2, 2017 (15:59 UTC). Only for trademark owners with a valid SMD file. During Sunrise only 1-year registrations are possible.
Early Access Program (EAP): From April 18 (16:00 UTC) until April 25, 2017 (15:59 UTC). First-come, first-served.
General Availability (GA): As of April 25, 2017 (16:00 UTC). First-come, first-served.

PLEASE NOTE:


- Applications can be submitted until 1 hour before end of Sunrise / EAP respectively before begin of General Availability.

- All .eco domains will be initially registered with a ServerHold status. Registrants will need to create an .eco profile at profiles.eco in order to activate the domain. After a registrant successfully registered a domain, the registry will send an email from activate@profiles.eco with the following Subject: "Activate{Domain}.eco". Once the registrant answered a few questions and created the .eco profile, the ServerHold status will be removed and the registrant will be able to use the domain.

command = AddDomainApplication

Reminder: Termination of the .organic verification on January 31


20.01.2017 14:37

Please note that the eligibility verification process for .organic domains will be discontinued effective January 31, 2017 (16:00 UTC). Thus, the requirement that registrants demonstrate eligibility prior to activating their .organic domain name(s) in the DNS will end.

In order to implement the change, .organic will undergo a maintenance on January 31 between 15:00 UTC and 16:00 UTC. During this time domain creations will not be possible.

Please note: Despite discontinuation of verification, .organic will still have acceptable use and registration policies that impart guidelines on content, but these will be limited to content related to the agriculture, cosmetic and/or the food industry.
