Hi all,

I registered my name using the free .ga domain , and I successfully registered 2 certificates for that domain a few months ago.

Has .ga been permanently removed ? is danielwalsh.ga no more ? I was planning on adding a few subdomains secured by ssl, but it seems that is no longer an option ><

Huh, I hope that's not a case.
I'm also using a .ga domain (though a paid one) with a StartSSL-signed certificate.

you can see for yourself from the admin panel , try to verify a domain you own ( which you did already for your gabon domain however that verification has been purged ) and when you try pick a TLD from the drop down menu you'll notice .ga is gone, the most similar option is .ga.us if i recall correctly.

StartSSL have done this before for .tk , in fact any domain available from http://www.freenom.com/ they have removed the TLD for it seems.

Its quite disappointing because it means i'm going to have to transfer to a new TLD ( which i hope they wont remove in the future ... ) and then re-issue my certificates for my main domain and my sub-domains such as fs.xyz proxy.xyz mobile.xyz ssh.xyz , its a real PITA

Yeah I read that they removed .tk as free domains seem the have a higher abuse rate.
I hope they still allow paid FreeNom domains otherwise I'll soon have a huge amount of broken links... (I'm using a .ga domain for URL shortening over https)

Have you already contacted StartCom about this?

they have no way of differentiating between paid and free domains, so I suspect they will just continue to block the TLD.

This post was my first communication on the subject, and since my SSL cert is free and I am only running a site for me I didn't feel the need to escalate the issue beyond a forum question for the Admins.

Since you have more invested in .ga than me perhaps you could submit a ticket ( and also did you verify that you couldn't see .ga in the domain validation screen ?? )

And if you get a response it would be great if you could update this thread.
