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:
- Domain Availability Checker (DAC)
- Online Services
- 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.
If you have any questions please contact our customer care services team on +44 1865 332233 or via [email protected].
