Announcing RAMP

A streamlined process for migrating to a secure .BANK website

Registrar Assisted Migration Program (RAMP) is a one-stop-shop secure hosting package, with everything you need to have a fully compliant .BANK website:

  • Secure Website and Email Hosting
  • DNSSEC
  • .BANK Zone Nameservers
  • Domain Validation SSL Certificate
  • DMARC Alignment Deployment
  • Up to 10 hours of migration consulting

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.

What’s included?
Everything you need to smoothly migrate to your new .BANK or .INSURANCE domain name:
Secure Website and Email Hosting
DNSSEC
.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.

NOTE:
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.

Blockchain FAQs

  • How will I be able to view a blockchain website?

For now, you will be able to search for them at unstoppabledomains.com, on partner applications that integrate our search bar, or on blockchain apps that index blockchain domain websites.

Unstoppable Domains does not have the ability to move a domain once distribution has occurred.
  • How do payments work with my blockchain domain?Add your bitcoin, Ethereum, and Zilliqa addresses to your .zil or .crypto domain inside of the ‘my domains’ section at unstoppabledomains.com.
