Power Up February 2019

Our Latest Product Enhancements, Updates, and Announcements

Finding ways to make customers satisfied with our products and services is our mission. And believe it or not, your feedback is crucial to helping us give you more of what want and less of what you don’t.

This month, we’re spotlighting a few of the product features we know you’ll really love. Take a look!

CAA Record Update is Here!

The wait is over: CAA record is supported by both our Basic and PremiumDNS packages!

What is this?

A Certification Authority Authorization (or CAA) is a type of DNS record that lets a domain owner specify which Certificate Authorities (or CAs) may issue their SSL certificates. Only those CAs selected may issue security certificates for that domain or subdomain.

Why is this a good thing?

Now that HTTPS has become the industry standard in site security, fraudulent attempts to issue certificates have become more common. To guard against this, major Certificate Authorities created the CAA record as a solution.

Learn more about using the CAA Record in your Namecheap account.

Life Just Got Easier with Automated DNS Setup

With our new DNS template setup option, there’s no need to figure out how to manually re-configure your DNS settings. Now, you can connect your domain to a third-party application just in a few clicks.

Please note that currently this option is only configured for the Wix template. We’ll be expanding the list of the supported applications soon, so stay tuned and let us know what you think!
