.dev – The secure TLD for developers and technology!
.dev is an encrypted-by-default TLD by virtue of being inscribed in the HSTS Preload list. As such, all second-level domains under .dev will only load on modern browsers if a valid SSL certificate has been configured and the web server is serving HTTPS.
Since .dev domains are only accessible via https, the following functions are not available in our web interface:
- Hidden and 301 redirects
- dd24 Website Builder
The usage of a dd24 webspace package with a .dev domain is only possible with a free Let's Encrypt certificate.
.dev domains that do not have a SSL certificate configured may still be used for e-mail services and non-browser based uses such as defensive registrations.
