4th May – Planned System Maintenance

On Wednesday 4th May 2022 essential maintenance will be taking place from 06:00- 08:00 UTC+1 (BST). The following services will be unavailable during this time:

gTLD and UK:

  • APIs
  • Domain Availability Checker (DAC)
  • Dragon
  • EPP
  • Online Services
  • RDAP
  • Searchable WHOIS
  • Web Domain Manager

As part of this release we will also be updating the IP addresses associated with UK EPP and the DAC.

What do I need to do?

If you connect to UK EPP or the DAC using IP addresses instead of a hostname you should update your systems to use the following hostnames:

  • UK EPP: epp.nominet.org.uk.
  • DAC: dac.nic.uk.

If your own firewall:

  • does not limit your outgoing connections by destination IP address you do not need to do anything further.
  • does limit outgoing connections by destination IP address, you will need to add the new addresses to your ALLOW LIST before this release.
