We have added support for a new type of DNS record, the CAA.
A CAA (Certification Authority Authorization) record is used to specify the certification authorities that are allowed to issue SSL/TLS certificates for a certain domain name or sub-domain.
Beginning on September 8, 2017, every certification authority will be required to strictly follow the instructions in the domain-name or sub-domain CAA records for which the issuance of a certificate is requested.
Using a CAA record makes it possible to increase the level of security in an Internet network and to decrease the instances of unauthorized receipt of certificates for outside domain names.
We have prepared detailed instructions explaining CAA record options and the format for using it.
