There comes a time, in an IT company’s life cycle to change things. If it’s not going from shared hosting to server hosting, then onwards to your own data center. The other end of the stick is Registrar’s. Our Requirements for 2015-2016 are these.
- Secure Communications: Protect Clients against Website/Email Spoofing
- Privacy for All Client(s) Contact information is redacted
- Eliminate requirement for CainTech Services to store financial data. So CainTech Services is not breached like Target Store’s were.
To understand our history, CainTech Services LLC started with Godaddy for registering domains, which this has always been great service. After five years of growth, complications grow with differing clientele along, with standard security practicalities. Godaddy has always met our needs, until the present dead end for security implementations for our clientele.
To explain Godaddy offers great service for their offerings. For what isn’t covered your left in the dark, if they ever implement said service. The service in question is DANE/TLSA, (DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities) what is this acronym you may ask?
DANE for short means emails and communications are secured against someone intercepting emails, for someone other than the intended party. Other benefits include websites and email communication go through legitimacy checks. This is provided by DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) The main result is no one can pretend to be you, and your company (spoofing).
This security policy, along with default WHOIS privacy for owners of website(s) to have personally identifiable information redacted from public record. Is now default policy at CainTechServices, however to implement DANE we must switch to Gandi.net to facilitate our requirement(s).
Please see chart for prices
|Registrar Price for .com(s)||Without Privacy Owner(s) Registration(s): Public||With WHOIS Privacy|
|Gandi.net (WHOIS Privacy Defualt)||Default WHOIS Privacy.||19.50|
With the chart above some client(s) will save $6.10 and others will see an increase of $5 dollars. We hope our client(s) see the cost increase if applicable as beneficial for maintaining your privacy and security. Additionally Gandi doesn’t store financial information. Whether, it’s credit cards, PayPal, or ACH Bank Transfers. This additionally keeps CainTech Services out of the loop for theft of your financial transactions, and gives you additionally one less company that stores your credit card. This is better for our clientele in the long term. After this transition occurs our client(s) will receive one invoice instead of two separate invoices..
