Registrar Assisted Migration Program (RAMP) is a one-stop-shop secure hosting package, with everything you need to have a fully compliant .BANK website:
RAMP costs $2,500 a year. But for a limited time, .BANK enrollees will receive a discounted price of $1,000 for the first year.
Included in RAMP is up to 10 hours of free consulting to ensure a smooth migration with tasks such as exporting and importing your current website, setting up your new .BANK domain name in your current email platform, and redirecting your .COM domain name to your new domain name correctly to maintain your search engine ranking.
Once payment is received, EnCirca will reach out to you via email with the next steps.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or start a live chat with our team if you have any questions.
What’s the application process?
Once payment is received, our team will begin provisioning your website with all of the services listed above. The full website setup can take up to 4 weeks. We will reach out to you with updates after the first 2 weeks.
Everything you need to smoothly migrate to your new .BANK or .INSURANCE domain name:
Secure Website and Email Hosting
.BANK Zone Nameservers
Direct Validation SSL Certificate
DMARC Alignment Deployment
Up to 10 hours of consulting for the migration
Can I use my current .COM vendors for my .BANK or .INSURANCE website migration?
Your current hosting provider may be able to support your .BANK or .INSURANCE domain name. Please direct them to fTLD’s Implementation Hub so they can determine if they can assist you. To find the hosting specific details, see: TLS Implementation
Please note: If you choose to stay with your current hosting, DNS, or SSL provider the price of the RAMP program cannot be reduced. Staying with these vendors is also likely to prolong your migration, as more communication would be required between EnCirca and your other vendors. You may transfer these services to EnCirca to expedite migration and simplify future vendor management issues.
Is my .BANK or .INSURANCE domain compatible with my email provider, such as Outlook?
A .BANK or .INSURANCE domain name is set up with your email provider the same way a .COM is set up. Our trusted RAMP Program vendor can walk you through these steps.
The RAMP Program supports websites and email exchange up to 1 terabyte in size.
The RAMP Program applies to 1 domain name. For multiple domains, a separate order must be placed.
We support your domain needs from start to finish.
There are many internet browsers that support Handshake domains such as Opera and various Chrome plugins.
Please visit our Handshake helpdesk article for more options on how to view your Handshake domains
NextDNS is one of the most popular methods for accessing Handshake domain names. Install NextDNS. You can click “try it now” on nextdns.io to connect your device and resolve Handshake domains. Scroll to the Setup Guide at NextDNS to select the option for your device, confirm with the green button at the top of the page, and then go to the “settings” tab to “resolve Handshake domains.”
Install the Resolvr add-on to view Handshake names directly in the search bar of your Firefox browser.
Try searching your site with the HNS.to gateway, which allows you to access Handshake names without downloading software or modifying your DNS settings. You may also conduct searches directly by prefixing Handshake domains with “hns.to/,” such as “hns.to/welcome.nb/.”
EnCirca live chat and phone support will be closed for the day.
