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.
