Congrats To Norway’s .NO On Over 5,000 DNSSEC-Signed Domains!

Norid logoCongratulations to the Norid team on going live with DNSSEC for the .NO country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) this week!  You may recall we wrote about .NO being signed in the root zone of DNS back on November 18 (and the cake they baked to celebrate!), but this news this week now moves them to the fully “Operational” status in our DNSSEC deployment maps.

As they note on their page about the news, the .NO registry started accepting DNSSEC records from .NO domain registrants on Tuesday, December 9th.  They also indicated that they had 16 registrars (and now today I count 17).

Even better… after the first day, Norid’s Unni Solås reported on Twitter that they had passed 3,000 signed .NO domains:

and on the second day they were over 5,300:

Presumably two days later they will have even more DNSSEC-signed domains!

By the way, the Norid folks have a great DNSSEC project description (in English) that walks through the different stages of their deployment.  This could be very useful for any other ccTLDs looking to deploy DNSSEC.

Anyway… great work by the Norid team and others there in Norway – and we’re looking forward to hearing more about DNSSEC in Norway.
