That's right, we're headed to sea and want you to join us!

.TRAVEL: Important Updates

Please take note of the following important updates for .TRAVEL domains.

  • As .TRAVEL ownerchanges (trades) no longer trigger a renewal of the domain, we do not charge a renewal fee for ownerchanges. Ownerchanges are now free of charge.
  • .TRAVEL UIN (Unique Identification Number) Phaseout:
    • Effective August 1, 2018, the X-TRAVEL-UIN flag used in transfer requests, renewals, and domain trades (owner changes) for .TRAVEL domain names will be no longer required. 
    • For new registrations, a new flag, X-TRAVEL-INDUSTRY, will be introduced on August 1st 2018. This flag will require registrants of new .TRAVEL domains to agree to the following terms: Domain registrations in .TRAVEL are meant for all people or businesses engaged in all things travel related. By proceeding with this registration, the registrants acknowledges that they are engaged in or plan to engage in activities related to travel. This new flag will not be required for renewals, transfers, nor trades.
    • API users are encouraged to switch to the new X-TRAVEL-INDUSTRY agreement flag as the X-TRAVEL-UIN flag will be phased out entirely in September 2018. After that date, the X-TRAVEL-INDUSTRY flag will be required for all new registrations. Until then, either flag may be used. Please consult our wiki for further details: https://wiki.hexonet.net/wiki/TRAVEL

RSS Feed Important SSL Deadline for Chrome

As we have previously mentioned, on July 1st, 2018, any website viewed on Google Chrome that does not have an SSL certificate will receive a pop up, upon visitation, claiming it is not a secure site. With this coming development, we expect to see a major change in how consumers interact with their online navigation and purchases. With easy setup and prices starting as low as $11.90 USD, HEXONET has SSL certificate options for all your online needs and to keep you at the forefront of these changes.

For more information about the recommended SSL certificates available at HEXONET, visit our blog: SSL Certificates - Where to Start

Top Reasons to Purchase an SSL Certificate for Your Website

Security and Trust: An SSL certificate not only helps you secure and encrypt your customers' data, it also proves to your customers that you care about their online protection and that you have taken steps to ensure they are safe while browsing your website. Add an extra layer of trust between you and your customers, and stand out immediately against any competitors that may not have yet added SSL to their site.

SEO Benefits: An SSL certificate helps you gain trust from Google. Following all other SEO best practices, including site optimization, new quality content, and market research, an SSL certificate will help boost your ranking and ensure that your SEO efforts are rewarded.

Increased Conversions: There are multiple studies that point to a boost in conversions when a website adds an SSL certificate. Customers claim that they feel better about providing their credit card information and other personal information when they see the HTTPS, padlock and green bar in the address bar. Think about how you would feel providing your personal information to a website that is labeled as "not secure".

RSS Feed Update on new gTLDs

HEXONET continues to launch more new TLDs on our new WEDNESDAY schedule, including several highly anticipated new TLDs these past couple of weeks:

SUNRISE New TLDS                         General Available New TLDs                   
  • .LLC
  • .APP

Keep up with the latest New TLDs launch dates with HEXONET's calendar here.

 

.APP - It's a Big Deal!

Google Registry's .APP entered General Availabilty on May 8. It was a hugely successful launch. Google Registry confirmed that 17,000 domains were registered during the Early Access Phase and over 30,000 domain names were registered within the first three minutes of General Availability. There are now over 242,000 .APP domains worldwide. Plus, at Google's recent I/O 2018 conference, they gave away over 7,000 free .APP domains to all attendees which will help spur usage and innovation. HEXONET also achieved a very high success rate in helping our customers secure their requested preordered domains. There are already many early adopters that are leveraging their new .APP domains. You can view some examples at: Get.APP This is excellent exposure to help drive further consumer awareness for new gTLDs.

What makes .APP so appealing?

1) Get a Memorable Domain. Get Discovered.

The name says it all. Find a brand new .APP name to match your company or product, so you can market your apps with a unique and relevant URL. Now, with a unique domain, it’ll be easier for people to find your app.

2) Security is Paramount

.APP is included on the HSTS preload list, making HTTPS required on all connections to .APP websites — no individual HSTS registration or configuration required. The result is built-in web security for you and your users. HEXONET is pleased to offer a wide selection of SSL certificates that you can configure for your .APP domain.

3) Engage Your Audience

Use your .APP domain name to keep your audience engaged and up-to-date about your app — from relevant, trustworthy download links to release notes, reviews, and more.

 

Get Ready! .LLC

Registry operator Afilias is launching .LLC - the new top level domain created for Limited Liability Companies in the USA and their online presence! .LLC is being positioned as the best-known TLD for LLCs and aspiring entrepreneurs on the Internet. The .LLC TLD will offer the estimated 4,000,000 Limited Liability Companies (or LLCs) worldwide and future owner-members of new LLCs domain names that closely match their firms’ legal names better than today’s alternatives. This will allow LLC companies to experience immediate and new, never-before-possible economic, branding and virtual interactive benefits. You can view complete pricing details from within your account pricing schedule commencing June 5, 2018.
