New Features in AutoDNS

Improved order process for encryption products

The process for ordering TLS/SSL certificates and other encryption products has been revised from the ground up and optimized for usability. A simplified product selection with useful filter options makes it easier to find the right product. The complex ordering process has been split into simple, logical segments. All steps have been redesigned with a new and clear layout.

Simplified product selection

The new filters make finding the right encryption products a breeze. You can now filter for products from a specific certification authority or according to specific use cases (website encryption, S/MIME, etc.), among other options.

Optimized order process

Once the desired encryption product has been selected, the subsequent steps in the ordering process will adapt dynamically. The previously complex process has been broken down into easily understandable and logical steps.

Did you know?

In AutoDNS you can order encryption products from all leading certification authorities and for all use cases, from TLS/SSL certificates and email encryption to code and document signing.

Price overview for products & services

The "Products & Services" tab has been added to the price overview. This handy overview lists the costs for all available optional services and their respective business cases.

Optimizations in AutoDNS

Expert mode in Domain Studio

The "Expert mode" can be toggled via a switch in the Domain Studio search bar, enabling users to manually give domain search results the status "Available" or "Assigned". This allows the corresponding order or transfer process to be started in the event of an incorrect or missing WHOIS response.

Redirects with URL paths

URL paths can now also be specified when setting domain redirects. This allows specific subpages to be redirected to a domain or target URL.

TLD registrations conditions in the shopping cart

The display of the special registration conditions for TLDs in the shopping cart has been improved for more convenience. The relevant conditions can now be accepted as a whole with just one click.

However, existing Multi-year Plan certificates will remain valid until the end of their regular maximum period (up to 6 years), depending on the validity period purchased. From 30 October 2023, renews and creates can only be requested for a maximum of 3 years.

TLS/SSL certificates from one of our other CAs, Sectigo, are still available with periods of up to 5 years. VMCs remain exclusively available from DigiCert.

Automatic zone provisioning for custom name servers

The automatic zone provisioning for custom name servers has been simplified. The system now checks whether the name servers are managed internally or externally and will offer either automatic provisioning or automatic migration accordingly.

news-69 Tue, 04 Apr 2023 13:21:34 +0000 New password policy for AutoDNS accounts https://us.autodns.com/changelog/changelog-detail/new-password-policy-for-autodns-accounts/ Effective immediately passwords are valid for a maximum of 12 months. Recent data leaks from password managers have made it even more critical to increase your account's security. As part of our commitment to increasing the security of your accounts, we have decided to mandate that passwords be changed on a regular basis. Effective immediately, passwords are valid for a maximum of 12 months and must be reset according to the guidelines listed below: 

  • Password length between 8 and 64 characters
  • at least one letter
  • at least one number
  • at least one special character (of the following: # ! $ % & / * + . , _ : ; ? @ ~ = -)
  • no spaces

We also recommend that you follow these guidelines when creating new passwords:

  1. Avoid predictable patterns: Avoid using easily guessable sequences such as "123456", "qwerty", or "password".
     
  2. Avoid personal information: Do not use personal information like your name, date of birth, or address.
     
  3. Regularly update your passwords: Change your passwords regularly, at least once a year, especially if you suspect that your account has been compromised.

Additional recommended security features in AutoDNS

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
We also strongly recommend activating 2FA to add an extra layer of security to your account. 2FA requires a user to provide two forms of identification, making it much harder for attackers to gain access to your account.
 
Account IP restriction
For maximum security, we also suggest using account IP restriction. Account IP restriction is a security feature in AutoDNS that limits access to user accounts from specific IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses.

Resetting your password: How-to

To change your password, activate 2FA and set up account IP restriction, simply log in to your AutoDNS account.
 
AutoDNS platform: 
Go to the "User Management" section – then navigate to “User” and “Security”. There you can conveniently carry out all measures.

AutoDNS X3: 
Go to the "User Management" section – then navigate to “User Configuration”.

  • To activate 2FA, please select “Authentication Method” and go to “Two-Factor Authentication”.
  • To set up the IP restriction, please navigate to “User Profile” and go to the tab “IP Restriction”.

You can find detailed instructions on how to reset your password in the InterNetX Help Center.

We also recommend using free online services like Have I Been Pwned or Firefox Monitor to check if your data has been compromised in any data breaches. Entering your email address on one of these services can help you quickly identify if your accounts have been compromised in any known data breaches, allowing you to take necessary steps to protect your information.

If you don't have a Sedo account yet, you can now easily create one via the AutoDNS interface by selecting "Create new account". In the following steps, you will be asked to enter the account details for your new Sedo account. After submitting the data, users will receive an email with a confirmation link. By clicking on the link, the account will be created and will be available shortly after.

This has been replaced in the meantime. From September 14, 2022 at 7:11 UTC to September 22, 2022 at 7:18 UTC, DigiCert's timestamp.digicert.com and adobe.timestamp.digicert.com services incorrectly issued a Timestamp Authority (TSA) certificate with a validity period of only one year. On September 22, 2022, DigiCert replaced this TSA certificate with a new TSA certificate with a validity period of 135 months (11 years).

To take advantage of the longer validity period, you must first verify which of your files or codes were signed during the window. You must then re-sign the affected files or code and apply the new timestamp.

The reason: According to CAB/Forum guidelines, the OU field is being eliminated industry-wide because it would be the only non-validated field in TLS/SSL certificates that could be used in a misleading manner.

news-26 Wed, 17 Nov 2021 14:47:40 +0000 Welcome to the dark side: AutoDNS Dark mode 🌗 https://us.autodns.com/changelog/changelog-detail/the-autodns-dark-mode/ Dark Mode in AutoDNS is not only a visual highlight, but also protects your eyes and saves battery life. Just in time for Black Friday, we present you with Dark Mode in AutoDNS. The easy management of your domains and all additional services now also work in dark display, making the use of the interface more pleasant for the eye. Many platforms, apps and websites already support this feature. But what can Dark Mode actually do? What advantages does it bring? And how do you activate it in AutoDNS? 

 

What happens in Dark Mode?

Dark Mode displays light areas in a dark color. Let's take a simple website with white background and black font as an example. If you activate Dark Mode, the dominant white background will become dark and the black text will become light. 
 

The advantages of using Dark Mode

Dark Mode is not only a visual feature, but also brings other advantages. By inverting light to dark, the millions of tiny diodes in a screen don't have to shine as brightly. This reduces the power consumption of devices with OLED screens, thereby ensuring a longer battery life on numerous end devices. 

Additionally, the dark mode setting reduces exposure to blue light. On the one hand, blue light keeps you awake, but it is also exhausting on the eye. It causes an oxidation process in the human eye and thus ages the retina faster. If you sit in front of the screen for a little longer, your eyes start to burn, they become dry, and your eyelids get heavier and heavier. Dark Mode slows down this process and helps your eyes tire less quickly. 

 

How to activate Dark Mode in AutoDNS

Click on the user icon at the top right of the screen. Now navigate to User Management and then to the Interface tab. Then select "Dark Mode" from the drop-down menu. The interface will automatically adjust after you save. Of course, you can switch to a different interface appearance in AutoDNS at any time.
