The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is transitioning to a new Registry platform for .CA domains beginning on October 12, 2010. OpenSRS is ready to go, and we expect a successful transition to the new platform along with CIRA.

Test environment updated

Resellers with API integrations for .CA domains are encouraged to test them using the Horizon Test Environment which has been updated and is now connected to the new CIRA Registry Platform Test Bed.

The Reseller Web Interface (RWI) in the Horizon Test Environment has also been updated and now reflects what you will see after the Registry Transition takes place. Please familiarize yourself with the changes to how .CA domains are provisioned and managed.

For more information on timelines and to view a webinar held with CIRA about the changes, visit the CIRA Registry Platform Transition page we’ve setup to keep you informed.

Status updates during the transition

During, and after the transition, Resellers can get updates through OpenSRS System Status. You can subscribe to realtime status updates via email by visiting the System Status Subscription Centre.
