domain and SSL renewal

MKT Manu Krishnan T V Public Seen by 72

Joe has transferred the domain to a godaddy account, which we created. The domain as well as the SSL certificate will expire by Dec 8, 2014.

Lets discuss which domain registrar we should chose and the SSL certificate.

umm... I looked at certificates in both Mozilla Firefox and Chromium. was not in both. We just need to see perhaps a site or two which uses Gandi SSL and see it works and also see if the certificate gets imported to the browser. If that works, we are practically home-free.

On the subject of price i leave to the rest of the gang.

You could try, all debian services use Gandi

We could move to when they arrive (summer 2015). We should configure DNSSEC and DANE in parallel. See the rationale by Jonne Haß

Godaddy says domain can be moved to an account only after 60 days of one move. So we are struck there.

Also just came to know that SSL expires day after tomorrow. Will create startSSL certificate and use it for temporary purpose, till we move to

@manukrishnantv why do we have to go for startssl temporarily? Either stick to it for a year or move to directly. What do you say? Also startssl allows only one free certificate per person I think. If that is the case someone who has not yet registered a certificate with them should do the registration.


Manu Krishnan T V Thu 4 Dec 2014 4:42PM offers Free SSL only for domains with them, which we can obtain only after January end. Otherwise we need to purchase an SSL Certificate, which costs around USD 15.

startSSL offers multiple free SSL's. I already have 4 with them.

@manukrishnantv then why don't we just go with the startSSL option? When becomes active next year, we can switch to it.
