Advocate I

Add a Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Record

We would like to know if GoDaddy have plans or a time frame for implementing a Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Record in your DNS system?

 

The CAA record/s allow domain owners/managers to determine which Certificate Authorities (CA) can issue certificates for their domain. Combined with your existing DNSSEC capabilities it would be very beneficial from an issuance and security perspective. Adoption from CA's to check the CAA record is still low at this stage, however, it is likely to see more widespread adoption moving forward in the short term.

 

P.S. I placed this under the SSL and Security location, as it is a security related issue as well. However, it would likely be better placed in a DNS category.

As mentioned in previous replies, it is possible to add a CAA record through GoDaddy DNS.  Please check out the following article for instructions on how to add a CAA record: https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-a-caa-record-27288.

What does the CAA tell the webmaster or IT admins exactly? I used to do a ton of html coding and am back to the site building and really liking WordPress, However I don’t really know where you go to get schooled on all of the new security standards & protocols from back in the early 2000s when I last designed a functional site with shopping cart & integrated inventory tracking software for a diamond broker out of NYC & Israel, but a lot has changed and I’m seeing many of you request the CAA be added to GoDaddy on these forums. Forgive my ignorance and rustiness with site building, but I guess I’m asking what it adds to a site & what it keeps out or in since it seems to be a security related issue?
