System Announcements

22 June 2016 - Planned downtime

At 7:00 (BST) on Wednesday 22 June 2016 all UK and gTLD registry systems will be unavailable including Online Services and Business Intelligence lasting for approximately one hour.
On 22 June registrars without the 2FA feature enabled will be given a choice at login whether to implement the feature at that time or to defer to a later date. Nominet aims to have all registrars using the feature before the end of 2016. A comprehensive user guide is available.

In line with recognised best practice we are strengthening the TLS requirements for EPP connections. From 22 June 2016 you will need to use TLS 1.1 or higher for your EPP connections. Please note the planned work to strengthen TLS  has been postponed and will be rescheduled for later in the summer. We will advise on the new date once this has been scheduled. We strongly advise registrars to ensure that they are using TLS 1.1 or higher for their EPP connections.

If you have any questions please contact our customer services team on 01865 332233 or email
