We are in the process of upgrading our easymail mailout system to a new server cluster, which will require a change of the public IP from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
AAAA records can now be created or updated via DYN update calls. For the ‘myip’ parameter in the DYN update call, you can now pass an IPv6 address. Be sure to escape special characters like colons with %3A and forward slashes with %2F as necessary in IPv6 addresses. For example, the IPv6 address 2400:cb00:2049:1::a29f:1835 would […]

This is designed to remedy the increasingly prevelant problem with SPF enforcement breaking email forwarding services from any provider, including ourselves.

This is phase one heading toward all system generated notices (login alerts, event notifications, renewal invoices, etc) being signed as well. We’ll be cleaning up any instances […]
Our root domain alias records (which we call ANAME records) now support IPv6 addresses. Any underlying AAAA records at the target host will automatically be added to the zone. In case you haven’t heard about ANAME records, here’s a quick explanation: normally you cannot create a CNAME or ‘alias’ record for a domain’s apex or […]
