<![CDATA[Distrust of HTTPS]]>Fri, 08 Dec 2017 11:42:06 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/distrust-of-https

Upcoming browser distrust of HTTPS Certificates

​Earlier this year Chrome announced plans to distrust the Symantec Certificate Authority. Chrome was concerned about how some Symantec partners had been allowed to operate without proper auditing or supervision. To clarify Symantec also issues certificates under the Geotrust, Thawte and RapidSSL brands.
​Following discussion with the browser community Symantec was required to outsource certificate management and issuance processes. Following this requirement Symantec made the decision to sell its Certificate Authority business to DigiCert Inc. This would allow DigiCert to take over the management and issuance of certificates.
From 1 December 2017 Symantec, Geotrust, Thawte and RapidSSL certificates (including reissues) are being issued from the DigiCert infrastructure. This is not affected by the upcoming distrust and no action needs to be taken.
From 1 December 2017 Symantec, Geotrust, Thawte and RapidSSL certificates (including reissues) are being issued from DigiCert infrastructure. This is not affected by the upcoming distrust and no action needs to be taken
Certificates Expiring before 15 March 2018
- Certificates should be renewed as required. However certificates renewed before 1 December 2017 will need to be reissued after 1 December 2017.

Certificates Expiring after 15 March 2018

- Certificates issued (including reissues) before 1 June 2016 with an expiry after 15 March 2018 should be reissued after 1 December 2017.
- Certificates that expire between 1 January 2018 and 15 March 2018 should be renewed or replaced between these dates without losing validity.
- Certificates issued (including reissues) between 1 June 2016 and 1 December 2017 with an expiry beyond 13 September 2018 should be reissued, replaced or renewed after 1 December 2017.
- Certificates issued (including reissues) between 1 June 2016 and 1 December 2017 with an expiry before 13 September 2018 require no action.

Certificates Expiring after 13 September 2018
- Certificates issued (including reissues) prior to 1 December 2017 need to be reissued, renewed or replaced after 1 December 2017.
- Certificates issued (including reissues) after 1 December 2017 require no action to be taken.

Reissue Process
If you are a managed or shared hosting customer you do not need to do anything, we will re-issue the certificate on your behalf. If you are not we will be in contact over the coming weeks to re-issue the SSL certificate with you.

Register the .ie domain names that you have a claim to before someone else does

​The rules for registering dot ie domain names are changing. From March 2018, the need to explain why you want a particular name (also called ‘claim to the name’) when registering a dot ie domain name will be removed.

This will make it easier and faster to get a dot ie domain. Anyone with a real connection to Ireland will be able to register any available dot ie domain they want.
 
In the meantime, it is important that you protect your brand and register any available names you need before the rules change. The only way to ensure that no one registers a domain you want or need is to register it yourself. ​Click here to check .ie domain availability >>

<![CDATA[Startup revolution]]>Fri, 24 Mar 2017 17:00:45 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/startup-revolution

​Trendy domain in the tech world

IO is a common abbreviation for 'Input-Output' in Computer Science, and increasingly technology companies are registering .io domains to reflect their organisations and projects.
.io domains have a real appeal to the tech-orientated; coders, designers, engineers, gamers, and developers, among others.

Why register a .io domain ?

  • The new .io name space is highly sought after, for example by tech companies.
  • .io is a new domain and therefore many names are still available to register. 
  • Google treats .io as a top-level domain.
  • Anyone, anywhere can register.
  • Registrations are accepted quickly and efficiently.
  • .IO operates a DNSSEC signed zone, operated on a secure, globally diverse anycast system with over 40 locations. Your domain will work securely, as expected, and fast!
  • .io is recognized by the tech community
 
With over 1.1 million domains registered under .COM alone, it’s increasingly difficult to nab a unique but memorable domain name. Plenty of great domains are available for .IO in spite of its increasing popularity. You can still find lots of catchy words and even three letter domains, so there’s no need to settle for a long or complicated one.

Safe

Our .IO domains operate on a secure, globally diverse registered system. Your domain will work securely, as expected, and fast!
Every domain name has a WHOIS listing, which is a searchable database of registered domains. It is available to everyone on the Internet. Without domain privacy, or WHOIS privacy protection, all of your contact information (address, phone number, name, etc) is available to the public.

After the .io registration you can make sure that your brand is a unique and safe. The quality of .io domain is much more likely to be available versus their .com counterparts. Although .io is technically a ccTLD it is recognized as generic by Google due to its popularity among startups. This means you don’t have to worry about the potential domain hack downside of not being able to geotarget it in Webmaster Tools.
