Norway's .NO ccTLD Now Signed With DNSSEC

By Dan YorkDirector of Web Strategy

Norway’s .NO became the latest country-code top-level-domain (ccTLD) to be completely integrated into DNSSEC’s global chain of trust with the publication of their DS record in the root zone of DNS over the weekend. As noted in the tweet below (and an earlier one), the team in Norway is rather excited about this event!

I don’t know that I’ve seen anyone bake a cake before to celebrate the signing of a top-level domain, but this is pretty cool!

Congratulations to the team at .NO that made this happen!  We’ve updated the DNSSEC deployment maps with the info so that Norway now shows up in a “green” status.

On a page about DNSSEC on the Norid web site, they indicate that they will start accepting DNSSEC records on 9 December 2014.  This means that .NO domain registrants will very soon be able to experience the higher security of DNSSEC and DANE!

If you would like to learn more about how you can secure your domain with DNSSEC, please visit our Start Here page to find resources targeted at your type of organization.
