DK Hostmaster WHOIS service upgrade notification

On Tuesday, January 21 2020, DK Hostmaster will deploy a minor bug fix to our WHOIS lookup service related to the DNSSEC status displayed on queried .dk domains.

Currently, DNSSEC information on domains is displayed as follows:



Registered: 1999-05-17

Expires: 2022-06-30

Registration period: 5 years

VID: yes

Dnssec: Signed delegation

Status: Active

Where DNSSEC status value can be either "Signed delegation" or "Unsigned delegation" indicating whether the queried domain has active DNSSEC or not. Unfortunately, this information is in some cases not reflecting the true status to DNSSEC on the domain.

The bug fix addresses this issue by introducing a more detailed status, being one of the following new values:

DNSSEC: Signed delegation

DNSSEC: Unsigned delegation, DNSSEC disabled, no records

DNSSEC: Unsigned delegation, DNSSEC disabled, keys unpublished

DNSSEC: Unsigned delegation, DNSSEC disabled

DNSSEC: Unsigned delegation, no records

DNSSEC: Unsigned delegation, DNSSEC enabled, keys unpublished

DNSSEC: Unknown status

Please note that "Dnssec" is changed to "DNSSEC" (all uppercase) at the same time.

For further information regarding this service, please refer to

Med venlig hilsen / Best regards

Udviklingschef / Head of Development
