DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) enables the owner of a domain to authorize certain certification authorities (CAs) to issue a certificate for the respective domain.

After you have logged into your Moniker account, click on Domains - My domains and choose the domain for that you want to enter a CAA record.

In the following dialog box please scroll down and click on CAA.

In the field Property Tag select the desired TAG.

The following options are available:

issue
- This property allows a CA, defined in the value field, to issue a certificate for the affected domain.

issuewild
- This property works like issue, but for wildcard certificates and only for wildcard certificates.

iodef
- This property allows the domain owner to provide a contact option for CAs. These will be used if there is an abuse. Not all certifiers support this feature.

  • In the "Value" field, enter the permitted certifier (e.g. Comodo).
  • In this case, only Comodo should be able to issue a certificate for the domain "MeineDomain. de".
  • By clicking on "Add further DNS Records" you can add further CAA Records.
  • To complete the configuration, please click the "Save" button.
