Companies add .jobs to their domain name portfolios to efficiently communicate the online destination of an employment page to job seekers throughout the world.
Verisign provides registry services to Employ Media for the .jobs top-level domain (TLD), including registration, resolution, billing and first-level customer support.
For assistance or questions, please contact the Verisign Customer Affairs Office at +1-703-925-6999 or send an email.
STEP 1: ICANN ACCREDITATION (Required)
Your business must be ICANN-accredited before you can become a registrar for the .jobs top level domains (TLDs). Go to the ICANN website to start the ICANN accreditation process.
STEP 2: EMPLOY MEDIA AGREEMENT (Required)
The .jobs TLD is managed by Employ Media. To become a .jobs registrar, you will need to execute a Registry-Registrar Agreement with Employ Media. Employ Media advises Verisign once you have executed the .jobs Registry-Registrar Agreement.
STEP 3: AUTHENTICATION (Conditional)
A Verisign vendor will contact you to request documents as proof of your business and your authority to represent and act on behalf of your company, an ICANN-accredited registrar. If you have already completed this step during the onboarding process for another TLD operated by Verisign, you will not be required to complete it again.
STEP 4: VERISIGN CERTIFICATION
After you establish an account, you may complete the next steps simultaneously: provide financial information and determine technical readiness. Use the tabs below to proceed.
Establish a Contractual Relationship
To add .jobs to your account, return signed, original copies of all required documents to:
Attention: Customer Affairs Office
12061 Bluemont Way, 1st Floor
Reston, VA 20190
Or fax to: +1-703-948-3977
NOTE: All documentation must be provided in English.
Name Store Activation Agreement (Required)
To obtain the Name Store Activation Agreement, email the Verisign Customer Affairs Office. The Verisign Customer Affairs Office will forward the agreement to you electronically.
Registrar Information Form (Conditional)
If you have not already completed a Registrar Information Form, or if you need to update your account information with Verisign, you will be required to complete a Registrar Information Form (PDF). You will need the following technical information: Web server name, Whois server name, and no more than three subnets in Classless Inter-Domain Routing Protocol (CIDR) format, up to a total of 96 hosts (/26 = 64 hosts, /27 = 32 hosts, /28 = 16 hosts, /29 = 8 hosts, /30 = 4 hosts, /31 = 2 hosts, /32 = 1 host).
To establish an account with Verisign, email all required forms and supporting documentation to the Customer Affairs Office.
Financial Requirements (Conditional)
Existing .com, .net registrars have already established a financial account with Verisign and may use their existing payment security to support .jobs transactions. If you expect a considerable increase in your monthly transaction volume, you should re-evaluate the amount of your payment security and adjust it accordingly. For more information on the Payment Security requirement, contact the Customer Affairs Office.
NOTE: You may start this process before you receive your user IDs and passwords.
Registrars must demonstrate full and correct operation of client systems within the Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) environment before connecting to the Shared Registration System (SRS). You may begin development of your client applications before you receive your user IDs and passwords, but you will not be able to complete them until Verisign has established your account.
Verisign requires that each server that communicates with the SRS has a 40- or 128-bit SSL Certificate installed. Verisign accepts the following SSL Certificates:
- RapidSSL Wildcard
- QuickSSL Premium
- True BusinessID
- True BusinessID MultiDomain
- True BusinessID Wildcard
- Starfield Standard SSL
- Secure Site (40bit)
- Secure Site Pro (128bit)
- SSL 123
- SSL Web Server
- SGC SuperCerts
- Wildcard SSL
Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) SDK
To develop the client end to the SRS, you must access EPP software. Verisign has developed EPP SDKs and guides to help you develop your client application.
If you choose to develop your own EPP implementation, it must be based on RFC-5730, the published protocol specification. You will need to acquire and incorporate an implementation of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol into your EPP software. You will also need to secure a license for the use of RSA cryptographic algorithms through RSA Data Security, Inc.
You will receive your user IDs and passwords to the OT&E environment when Verisign has established your account. Your informational packet will include testing information to complete this process. When you are ready to demonstrate technical operation and qualify for access to the production SRS, contact the Verisign Customer Affairs Office. For assistance with testing, contact Customer Support.
Once you become a certified registrar, Verisign offers value-add services and other TLD registry services to help you grow your domain name business. These services and TLDs are easy to add to your account and start using today.
To add any of these services, please contact Customer Support at +1-703-925-6999 or
send an email.
