Registrar newsletter from Punktum dk - August 2023

More than 64% of all .dk domain names have a DNSSEC signing!

Thanks to all of you who have helped ensuring that we have a secure Danish internet with more DNSSEC signed domain names! The more domain names with DNSSEC - the more secure is the Danish part of the internet.

DNSSEC signing means that we can prevent hackers from taking control of a domain name and a website. And it works, because the Telecommunications Industry Association Denmark/the internet providers are ensuring that DNSSEC is on when accessing a domain name (in many other countries the internet providers do not see this as their task.)

In addition, you can check how secure your domains and your e-mails are using our security tool sikkerpå Link here

If you are curious about why it matters that as many domain names as possible have DNSSEC, read more here

Update on MitID for Danish companies

It is now possible for Danish companies in self-service to complete ID control as a company using a private MitID.  By logging in with MitID, the customer is presented to a list of all companies that are linked to the CPR number from MitID.

On you can find a guide that explains in which situations you can use private MitID as a company or as an association. More information here

NemID is closing down on October 31st

Due to the transition to MitID, NemID is closing down on October 31st 2023. This means that Danish registrants will no longer be able to use NemID, and will instead have to use MitID to perform id-control after October 31st 2023. For more information, please see here
