New blog post:
Making money on a trademark holder

hand squeezing a lemonBeing a trademark holder can be a tough job these days: many hundreds of new extensions equal many hundreds of new threats against your protected mark. Someone can protect his brand actively or passively, but in some cases it really seems to be on the back of the trademark holder. There’s one registry that promotes this to a whole new level…

Changes to renewal logic

We are continuously optimizing systems to be able to handle the increasing domain volumes. One of the bottlenecks coming up is the daily renewal process: the higher the number of domains under management, the higher the number of domains that require renewal daily. This process has completely been rebuilt, although most changes will be invisible to you.


New accreditations: .lv and .pro

Openprovider is always working on new accreditations in order to provide our customers with the best possible price and service. On the 5th of July, we will activate our own accreditations for .pro and .lv.


Disguise your domain data with privacy protection service

WPP or Whois Privacy Protection is a service that Openprovider now offers publicly to all its customer base. Enabling WPP on the domain disguises your identity and provides proxy contact information in the Whois.


DNSSEC status added to the domain list download

On the 19th of July, the downloadable CSV file that you can retrieve through the domain overview page in the control panel will be extended by a field “DNSSEC status”. This additional field shows whether or not a domain is secured with DNSSEC. Customers automatically parsing this file should be aware of this new field, which is placed directly after the nameserver list.
