Registration details

You can find registration details in our TLD reference chart

SSL requirements

The HSTS Preload list added the .APP, .DEV and .PAGE namespace to its list. Second-level domains under these TLDs will only load on modern browsers if a valid SSL certificate is configured, and the web server is serving HTTPS.

Registration language requirements

Resellers must present the following information to registrants during the checkout process before the registration of a .APP, .DEV or .PAGE domain:

  • That .APP, .DEV and .PAGE domains are a more secure domain because they are HSTS preloaded.
  • The requirement to configure HTTPS serving so that browsers can load .APP, .DEV and .PAGE websites.
  • Resources about configuring HTTPS and obtaining an SSL certificate.

Resellers can provide this information as part of an external or internal website or window, and should include their details on configuring HTTPS browsing or link to a third-party resource like Let’s Encrypt.

We have provided a sample which meets all of the requirements noted above:

.APP, .DEV and .PAGE domains are secure domains that require HTTPS for all websites of these TLD types. You can buy your .APP, .DEV or .PAGE domain name now, but for it to work correctly in any browser, you must first configure HTTPS serving. For more information about setting up HTTPS, including resources to obtain an SSL certificate, please visit [link to reseller page on SSL, or Let’s Encrypt].

[Follow by reseller option to add an SSL certificate to cart.]

SSL options

OpenSRS offers a variety of SSL certificates to provide to your clients with the purchase of a .APP, .DEV or .PAGE domain. We also provide a free SSL Lite certificate for your registrants.
