February 2024

HTTPS URL Redirect is now available

You can now redirect traffic to another domain while securing and encrypting data with Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) URL Redirect. This service, which is free of charge for all of our customers, allows you to use secure URL redirects, which are now SSL enabled. Boost your site's trust and credibility, and enjoy an improved user experience.

To keep Spaceship flexible, you have multiple access points when assigning your URL redirects. 

  • Domain List: Head to your Domain List, select the domain you’d like to redirect, and hit URL Redirect in the side panel. Or, using the Domain List too, you can use Connections to assign your redirects. Hit the plus on the domain you want to configure and find URL Redirects in the Connect to page.
  • Unbox™: When you Unbox™ a domain, you’ll see URL Redirect ready to be assigned in seconds.

Refined navigation: transfer

Your domain is your domain. If you need to transfer to another user, or to another provider, we want that to be as simple as possible. 

To do this, Spaceship’s improved Help Wizard now connects you to the transfer process quicker. Just enter domain transfer in the global search and you’ll be sent to your Domain List. Next, select the domain you wish to transfer and hit the Transfer tab. There you can transfer out or transfer ownership in just a few clicks. 

New domain 

The .eu domain is now available to register. Just use domain search to easily register yours in minutes. With .eu integration, you can now transfer your .eu domain to Spaceship too. Head to the transfer page, follow the steps, and move your digital journey forward. 

Enhanced Domain Portfolio

Simplicity and flexibility are key components of effective management. So, Spaceship has improved your Domain Portfolio with advanced sorting. 

Now, you can filter your domains in better ways for you, and find them even quicker. Filter by: nameservers, category, DNS template, registration date, and expiration date.

External domain improvements

After an hour, inactive external domains with no connections will be automatically deleted. This allows you to reassign the domain and make connections with no errors in seconds.

Domain portfolio upgrade

Based on your feedback, we’ve made significant improvements to your Domain Portfolio, giving you ease of control and freeing up time.

  • To improve how you track ownership and manage your domains, we now include registration and expiration dates on your invoices too.

Transferring to us may save money, but transferring in bulk will save you time. You can now import your list of domain names from a CSV file and transfer your domains in bulk.
