Companies add .jobs to their domain name portfolios to efficiently communicate the online destination of an employment page to job seekers throughout the world.
FreeYourID 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 FreeYourID Customer Affairs Office at or .
Your business must be ICANN-accredited before you can become a registrar for the .jobs top level domains (TLDs). The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a not-for-profit, public-benefit corporation that coordinates the unique identifiers used for computers connected to the Internet across the world. Go to the ICANN web site to start the ICANN accreditation process.
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 FreeYourID that you have executed the .jobs Registry-Registrar Agreement.
ICANN notifies all registry operators, including FreeYourID, when the accreditation process is complete. Next, ACP, a FreeYourID 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.
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.

Registrar Information Form (Conditional)
To complete the 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).

Existing .com, .net registrars have already established a financial account with FreeYourID 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.
NOTE: You may start this process before you receive your user IDs and passwords.
Calculate Minimum Payment Security
FreeYourID requires registrars to establish a payment security to secure each month’s registrations. To estimate your payment security, calculate:
.jobs registrations x duration (1 to 10 years) x $95 = Minimum Payment Security Registrars are required to increase the payment security when registration levels repeatedly exceed the current payment security.
Note: A single financial account secures multiple TLDs so this needs to be taken into consideration when determing your payment security requirement.
Payment Security Options
The payment security is held without action unless invoices are not paid in accordance with the terms of the Registry-Registrar Agreements. Acceptable payment security vehicles include: cash deposit, an irrevocable standby letter of credit from a bank, or a payment security bond (PDF) from an approved surety or bank. If selecting the cash deposit option to fulfill your payment security obligation, please note the following information.

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 FreeYourID has established your account.
FreeYourID requires that each server that communicates with the SRS has a 40- or 128-bit SSL Certificate installed. FreeYourID allows SSL Certificates from thawte.
Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) SDK
To develop the client end to the SRS, you must access EPP software. FreeYourID 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 their EPP software. You will also need to secure a license for the use of RSA cryptographic algorithms through RSA Data Security, Inc.
Testing and Evaluation
You will receive your user IDs and passwords to the OT&E environment when FreeYourID 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 . For assistance with testing, contact .
