Domain application (enter the required domain name, select extension from the drop down list to see available launch phases for the extension and select the phase from the drop down)

Or via API specifying "application_mode". You can find supported application modes for an extension using ListTlds or GetTld and look for "supported_application_mode" in the response.


SSL certificate required

Note that the registry has put the extension on the HSTS preload list. As a result, web browsers will not show the website unless it is secured with an SSL certificate. Check the Openprovider control panel for more information on how to order an SSL certificate. You can still register a domain without installing SSL certificate. The domain will be yours, but the domain will not load in the browser. Other applications will work as normal (e.g. e-mail).
