.APP launches 8th of May!
Saturday, May 5, 2018
Starting from 8th of May, INWX offers the new generic Toplevel-Domain .APP for general avaiable registration.
For each .APP domain, the HSTS feature is enabled by default, making your .APP domain a more secure domain, since the use of this domain always an active SSL encryption is necessary. Registration of .APP domains is equally possible for individuals and businesses. A local contact is not needed.
Cost: 19.90 (net: 16.80) EUR per domain / year
What does "HSTS" and "HSTS preloading" mean?
HSTS means "HTTP Strict Transport Security" and is a method that informs the user and the web browser, such as the connection between the server and the web browser. When HSTS is activated, various parameters are set during the data transfer, forcing the website to establish an encrypted connection.
HSTS preloading, on the other hand, means that .APP domains are automatically included in the directory of hstspreload.org and that various browsers are included in this directory inform if only one encrypted connection is possible for this domain.
Thus, "HSTS" and "HSTS preloading" is an important element to make visiting websites much safer. This procedure applies by default to all registered .APP domains and will be activated with every domain registration. Furthermore, this also means that HSTS can not be deactivated for an .APP domain. The secure connection via HTTPS is no longer optional, but mandatory.
What do I have to do to use my new .APP domain?
In order for your new domain to be accessible worldwide and become home to your app or website, it is necessary to have your web server or web hosting package "SSL sure" to make. This means: You need a suitable SSL certificate for your new domain, which is queried and verified with every call of your domain.
How can I order an SSL certificate for my .APP domain?
If you have opted for an .APP domain and now need the necessary SSL certificate, we will assist you in ordering and setting up the certificate very much to your side. If you use your own server or an external web hosting provider for your domains, we will need you to submit a certificate request. This is a .CSR file, which we need for issuing the certificate. Further information on how to create the certificate request can be found under the following link: https://ssl-trust.com/csr-erstellen
If, on the other hand, you want to connect and use your new .APP domain with your INWX web space package, we will take care of all the necessary steps for you. Information about our offered SSL certificates can be found in our knowledge base at: https://kb.inwx.com/?solution_id=1280
