Features and Improvements
- DNS Templates
- It is now possible to create and edit DNS Templates. A template stores a set of resource records. For details please refer to section 8.11 of the DomiNIC Online Documentation
- DNS Templates can be created on customer level
- When selecting a DNS template within the order process, all specified resource records will be included in the order
- This feature can be activated based on new user rights
- Contact administration
- Contact search, view and download functionalilty
- Modification of contact details
- For further information please refer to the DomiNIC Online Documentation
- MultiNIC transfers
- A domain already in DomiNIC can be transferred from one NIC to another, e.g. from a registrar to a registry or from a registrar to another registrar
- It is also possible to change the customer assignment as well as the NIC.
- This feature can be used with SOAP and Batch interface.
- Domain Imports from NIC and DNS
- Domains can be imported by using the DomainImportOrder via SOAP or Batch API. All data than can be obtained from the NIC will be queried automatically, containing contact data, nameservers, authcode etc. Also all resource records will be queried from the authoritative DNS, if a full zone transfer is allowed.
- This feature can be used to either import new or missing domains in the system, or to synch existing domains with NIC data.
- The feature is released for the following NICs:
- Denic Nic.at RESTENA Switch Ascio
- For further information please refer to the DomiNIC Online Documentation, Section 1.10
- Order Approval: Orders selected for approval or refusal are displayed in a list for confirmation.
- When deleting domains or zones from auto name servers, a new check was added to make sure the zone was deleted successfully. When the zone will be deleted based on a Delete or Transit order, the zone will be deleted immediately, ignoring the configured zone delete timeout on the RNS-Agent. Please note: for this feature an update of the RNS agents to Version 6.1.20_113817 is required.
- Extended strict validation settings: when strict validation is disabled, the name parts of A, AAAA and MX records are not validated strictly any more. For more information, please refer to the DomiNIC Online Documentation
- New right added to determine, if optional contacts can be added to an order. Please note that the default profile “end user” does not contain this right.
- Security for authcodes generated by DomiNIC improved: Authcode is now a 14-digit random string, containing at least one upper/lower case character, one digit, one special character
- GUI: new help text for restoring resource record to default settings. This help text is only displayed when the system has configured default zone entries.
- The administrator of the system can now assign the right to change a reseller layout to the reseller. For this a new right ManageLayoutConfigurationProperties was introduced. By default the profiles Administrator and Reseller have this right.
