No

When preparing for certification I discovered that I could not create the Maximum Length Host
Name (63 Chars + 63 Chars + .info) as required. Although the create completed successfully, it in
fact truncated the last 4 characters of the host name.

For example:

enom-abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdef.enom-abcdefghijklmnopqrstu
vwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdef.info

would be added as

enom-abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdef.enom-abcdefghijklmnopqrstu
vwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdef.

The https://ote1.afilias.net/oxrs/base.jsp?content=host_add interface also stops one from entering
more than 128 characters when we should be able to enter 132:

63 Chars + dot + 63 Chars + .info = 132 characters.

This was reported with ticket # 129 May 30th, but has yet to be corrected.

Thanks,

Dan

    This bug was filed with the registry developers shortly
    after it was posted. When it is fixed (they've marked the
    priority as not very high), I will post an update here.

    I do notice that the priority you have marked is 9. Do you
    really think it warrants it? A nameserver name of that
    length is pretty extreme.

    This was marked as high because Afilias' own certification process is affected by it. They ask you to
    perform such an action, but it canot be done. This is both confusing and wrong from the standpoint of
    those getting certified.

    I just got a response from a coordinator in the registry
    development team. This has apparently been fixed in the
    info registry. A host name now can have two forms:
    up-to-68-chars + ".info" or up-to-68-chars + "." +
    up-to-68-chars + ".info".

    Has ticket 169 from May30th been closed at Afilias tech support?

    Ticket 129 I assume is no longer open. Looks like their limit has grown.

    wonderful. I will close this bug then. Please re-open it
    if you encounter the problem again.

    Thanks!
