Eligibility requirements for Google Registry Domain Extensions

Domain extensions managed by Google Registry are required to operate within a secure namespace, meaning you will need an SSL Certificate installed on your website before it can be viewed in a browser. These domain names come pre-submitted to the HSTS Preload list, which in effect makes them HTTPS-only.

If you require an SSL certificate, you can purchase one through the VentraIP website or your VIPcontrol account. Alternatively, if you have a hosting service with VentraIP, you will be provided with a free Auto SSL Certificate. Auto SSL Certificates are installed automatically on your web hosting service.

In the event that you purchase an SSL Certificate through a third party provider and need assistance installing it on your VentraIP hosting service, please contact our technical support team.

What will happen if I don’t have an SSL Certificate installed?

Frankly speaking, your website won’t be accessible and a browser error will occur when you visit your domain name if it uses one of the below extensions:

  • .app
  • .boo
  • .dad
  • .day
  • .dev
  • .esq
  • .foo
  • .how
  • .ing
  • .meme
  • .mov
  • .nexus
  • .page
  • .phd
