Norid https://teknisk.norid.no Driver registeret for norske domenenavn Fri, 02 Jul 2021 10:20:33 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.7.1 Transition to a new registrar agreement well on the way https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/overgang-til-ny-forhandleravtale-godt-i-gang/ Fri, 02 Jul 2021 10:19:05 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=17141 A couple of weeks after sending out the new registrar agreement, many of our registrars have started the work to enter into the new agreement. 125 registrars have finished the first step and signed the agreement, and 39 registrars have completed the transition to the new agreement. This means that 16 percent of the domain names have a registrar that has entered into the new agreement.

Please note that it is not enough to sign the new agreement, you must also do some other preparatory work. One of the things you must do is to register a primary contact, and the primary contact must take the registrar test.

Here you can find information about the steps that have to be completed

If you already know that you do not want to continue as a registrar, you can send us a termination of the agreement.

If you want to cooperate with another registrar or need to find a new registrar for your domain portefolio, you can find one on the list of registrars that have entered into the new agreement.

New Applicant’s declaration takes effect on 24 August 2021 https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/ny-egenerklaering-trer-i-kraft-24-august-2021/ Thu, 01 Jul 2021 08:22:47 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=17114 Norid has introduced a new registrar agreement. This means that some terms for registrars will be removed from the domain name policy because they are covered in the new registrar agreement. The Applicant's declaration will be updated as a part of this.

In order to make the separation between the domain subscription terms and the registrar terms and conditions clearer, we will update the subscription terms in the domain name policy for Norwegian domain names after the transition period for the new registrar agreement is over. You can read the details about the changes here. You can read the details here.

Applicant's declaration (Appendix G) update

For you as a registrar there is one change that is especially important to note: Appendix G: Applicant's declaration gets an update. This means that the registrars that have the declaration built into their own systems must update these. The new Applicant's declaration

  • steps up to version number v3.2 2021-08-24
  • takes effect on 24 August 2021 (Norid's Applicant declaration tool gets an update at that time)
  • works in parallell with the current version v3.1 2019-12-10 until 28 September

Starting on 28 September 2021 the registry system will only accept version v3.2.

You can already test the new Applicant's declaration in Norid's test system. Updated specifications for the Applicant's declaration: Requirement specification for the applicant’s declaration from 2021-08-24.

Transition to the new registrar agreement starts now https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/klart-for-overgang-til-ny-forhandleravtale/ Tue, 15 Jun 2021 09:17:09 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=16890 We are now ready to start the transition to the new registrar agreement. In order to continue as a registrar, you must accept the new agreement by signing it, and also complete the required steps mentioned below no later than 18 August 2021.

The required steps are listed on this webpage: Transition to a new registrar agreement

Notice of transition to the new agreement has been sent to all registrars by email and letter.

By the end of today (15 June) you will also receive an email with a link to a digital version of the new registrar agreement. This is the version that you must sign. The email will be sent to your legal contact person on the registrar web. This email will be sent from no-reply@oneflow.com. If you do not receive it, please check your spam filter.

We have gone through the input and made some adjustments. The final text is now ready. The transition to the new agreement will start on 15 June 2021.

We want to thank the registrars who took the time to read and comment on the text draft. We have made a couple of small adjustments in order to make some of the terms clearer and easier to interpret, as well as some minor changes to the structure.

The most important material changes are that the registrars' duty to notify Norid if they discover discrepancies in Norids systems, will be limited to only apply for major incidents. We also reduce what is considered to be material breach of the agreement.

You can read the final agreement text here

The transition to the new agreement starts on 15 June. On that date the agreement will be sent to all registrars to be signed. Notice of transition to a new agreement will be sent to all registrars by email and letter at the same time.

Check registered contact information https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/sjekk-registrert-kontaktinformasjon/ Wed, 26 May 2021 06:16:27 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=16824 The new registrar agreement will be sent out shortly, and it is therefore important that all registrars check that their registered contact information on the registrar web is updated. The contact information must be updated by 4 June.

The proposed text for a new registrar agreement was published with a request for input from the registrars, and the deadline was reached on 21 May. The next step is to finalise the new agreement and send it to the registrars for signing. A termination of the current agreement will be sent at the same time.

All registrars are required to keep their contact information updated at all times. However, it is now extra important that you all log into the registrar web and check that your registered contact information is correct so that you the letter and email concerning the new agreement will reach you. The contact information must be updated by Friday 4 June 2021.

You can find your registered contact information under the tab Organizational on the registrar web. It is especially important that the following contact information is correct:

  • postal address and email address for the organization (Organization name)
  • the name and email address for your legal contact (Legal contact name)

Logging into test systems

At the same time we recommend that you make sure that you are able to log into the test systems for the registrar web and EPP. This is important because access to the test systems will be necessary in order to continue as a registrar under the new agreement. You will need access to both of your test accounts.

Please consult the list of Norid's services and tools to find the relevant URLs.

ICANN holds a workshop on 3 March – “ICANN and its technical mission” https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/icann-holder-workshop-3-mars-icann-and-its-technical-mission/ Tue, 09 Feb 2021 13:57:15 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=16317 Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) invites to a digital workshop on 3 March at 2–5 hrs pm (CET). The workshop is aimed at techies who want more information about how the upper level of DNS is handled. 

As the international administrator of the top-level domains ICANN makes the guidelines for allocation and registration of those. At this workshop they will inform about their work as regards DNSSEC signing and how the root zone is run. ICANN gather various actors to make overall rules for generic top-level domains (such as .com, .org or .shop). The workshop will go through some of ICANN's initiativs for these top-level domains.

ICANN consider this workshop to be useful both for those with former experience with ICANN and for new actors in the business. 

Register for the workshop: https://features.icann.org/event/icann-organization/nordic-region-workshop-icann-and-its-technical-mission 

For country-code top-level domains (such as .no eller .se) guidelines and terms are set in each specific country. Norid runs the Norwegian top-level domains and comply with the constraint given by the Norwegian domain name regulations. Norid and Norwegian authorities participate to ICANN processes where it is considered relevant for Norwegian interests.

Keep updated about your balance https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/motta-varsel-lavsaldo/ Wed, 01 Apr 2020 11:17:05 +0000 /?p=13065 You receive notifications about your balance from Norid's systems. These notifications are important in order to avoid that registration and renewal of domain names fail.

We recommend that you log into your account on the registrar web and check that the email addresses you have signed up to receive notifications from Norid's systems are correct. You can find these under the tab 'Admin'
and 'Operational'.

Automatic renewal may fail

Domain names are renewed during the night for registrars that have activated automatic renewal. If your balance does not cover all domain names due for renewal, you receive an email from our system. The email is sent to the email address stated in the
field 'Balance low email'. If this field is empty, the email is sent to the email address stated in the field 'Notify email'.

You receive an email notification about this 24 hours before the domain name holders are notified by email about their domains not being renewed. It is therefore very important that your notification reaches you.

Low balance warning

We recommend that all registrars activate low balance warning. This means that you will get a warning by email when your balance goes below an amount specified by you. You enter your preferred amount in the field ‘Balance low value’. The low balance warning
email is sent to the email address specified in the field 'Balance low email'.

When you specify an amount, the response on an EPP transaction that costs money will include a warning of low balance when the balance goes below this amount. This will happen for all transactions submitted when below the set amount. This is in addition
to the email mentioned above.

Contact us immediatly if you suspect something wrong with your balance

Contact us on info@norid.no as soon as possible if you receive a warning about failed renewals despite having made a payment to your balance. Remember to include a receipt of your payment.

Temporary stop in planned changes to Norid’s systems https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/temporary-stop-in-planned-changes-to-norids-systems/ Wed, 18 Mar 2020 13:12:17 +0000 /?p=13011 As everyone else, Norid follows all advice given by the authorities to limit the spread of the corona virus. This means among other things that all employees work from home. However, all our services are working as usual, and the registration of domains is functioning as normal. Our customer service can be contacted on info@norid.no or by phone +47 73 55 73 55 as before.

To ensure the continuation of a stable operation in this situation, we have decided that we will not do any changes in our production systems or on internal systems for the time being.

Any irregularities in our systems or in your systems towards ours, should be reported to our customer service as usual.

IP access lists for the Norid EPP service https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/ip-access-lists-for-the-norid-epp-service/ Tue, 03 Mar 2020 12:16:09 +0000 /?p=12976 The Norid EPP service is protected by an IP filter which restricts access to the service to the address blocks which are registered in the registrar web (https://registrar.norid.no).

On Tuesday March 10. we will narrow this filter so that each registrar can only access the service from the address block that they have registered for their own use. From what we can see in our system logs we do not think this change will cause any problems to the clients which are currently being used. Nevertheless, we ask you to ensure that the address blocks that you have registered in the registrar web is correct and includes all your client machines being used to access the services epp.norid.no, eppclient.norid.no and registrar.norid.no.

Change in SSL configuration for web services and for the EPP service https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/endring-i-ssl-konfigurasjon-2020/ Wed, 12 Feb 2020 10:54:09 +0000 /?p=12879 Norid prepares changes to the SSL configuration for all our regular web services and the EPP service.

The changes are due to changed recommendations, which now state that SSL protocols lower than TLSv1.2 pose a security risk and should be phased out in Q1 2020. Further information can be found by reading the information linked to from the references at the bottom.

Norid will follow the recommendations and thus change our services so that SSL protocols lower than TLSv1.2 no longer will be supported. Due to limitations in our underlying systems, TLSv1.3 will not be supported at this time. Only TLSv1.2 will be supported. Corresponding changes to cipher suites will also be performed.

The configuration will be adjusted to follow the recommendations for Intermediate compatibility as described for TLSv1.2 at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Server_Side_TLS.

The changes are rolled out in two tracks:

  • Regular web services: These are changed first. We assume that these are used from modern browsers, which have already supported TLSv1.2 for several years, and therefore we expect no problems with them.

    • The registrar test system has already been updated with the changes.
    • The production system will be updated with the changes 2020-02-18, in the service window 08:00-10:00 CET.
  • EPP service: This will be updated over a longer time period as we see the possibility that EPP software used by some registrars may need minor customization in the SSL connection code. Therefore, the test system is updated with the changes first, and the production system will be updated approximately two months later.

    • The test system will be updated 2020-02-18. All registrars should test their EPP software against the testing system and ensure that it works.
    • The production system will be updated 2020-04-21, in the service window 08:00-10:00.

System Maintenance Tuesday 2020-01-28 https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/system-maintenance-tuesday-2020-01-28/ Tue, 21 Jan 2020 11:29:30 +0000 /?p=12812 Norid is planning system maintenance on the registry system on Tuesday 2020-01-28 8 AM to 10 AM CET. The registry system (EPP), PID automaton and registrar web will be unavailable in short periods during the maintenance window.

A minor format change is introduced in the daily dumps of domain list on the Registrar web (https://registrar.norid.no/daily/whois/ascii/domains). The 'regtype' column content is changed
in the case when an electronic applicant's declaration (EAD) is registered on a domain. In addition to the character 'E' to indicate that an EAD is registered, the version of the EAD is presented in parenthesis. New format is 'E (x.y)', where x.y is the EAD version. Registrars that have programs that parses this file may need to adjust their programs.

The name service (DNS) will not be affected.
