5 April 2016 - System outage

At 07:00 (BST) on Tuesday 5 April 2016 we will have a systems outage lasting up to one hour when we will be carrying out essential maintenance. During this time all registration systems, Online Services and Business Intelligence will be unavailable.

All other Nominet systems continue to work as normal.

To bring our DNSSEC signing process in line with international standards we are making a change to the EPP domain:info response that contains DS records.

From 5 April 2016 the process will follow the RFC definition. Further details and examples are available here.
