.es changes

If you have .es domains registered with us, you should have received an email a few weeks ago informing you of changes that apply to our integration with the registry.

The implementation of the new flag will become mandatory from September 1.

We will send you a new email with more details on how to implement the change in the API and WHMCS in some days, and share with you a Knowledge Base article with all the information.
