Guess who owns the .BLOG Registry?

WordPress, the most popular blog software, powering over 50% of all blogs and over 25% of all websites, is the Registry operator for .BLOG.

So, even if you don’t plan to use the domain right away, it would be prudent to protect your brand so someone else doesn’t.

World Password Day – EnCirca protects your info

Today, May 5, 2016, is the 4th Annual World Password Day. It’s a good time to review your online presence and whether it is protected.

At EnCirca, we are dedicated to protecting your information. Our most recent change has been to upgrade customer logins to Two-Factor Authentication. This is valuable for most of our customers, and required for our .BANK and .INSURANCE domain holders.

2FA requires an additional security step to conduct certain operations. At EnCirca, if your account is enabled for 2FA, it will impact the following operations for all domains in your account:

  • Updating your customer record
  • Changing a domain’s Name servers
  • Updating Whois contact data
  • Updating Name servers info

Learn more about EnCirca’s Two-Factor Authentication here
