New site - Own Id

We've got a new domain name, and redesigned the site for http://www.own-id.com/. We're sort of trying it out at the moment, so let me know what you think.


  1. Hi,
    I just tried own-id.com, but didn't get very far. I added the CNAME but was prompted to 'enter the OpenId you got from your provider.' I have no clue what to do from here, so I tried with my email address giving a 1537 fatal transport error, then tried the address which throws me a nullpointer at ConsumerManager.java:601
    What to do?!

  2. Hello Hugo, you need to go to an OpenId provider such as:


    and get an OpenId identifier. Then go to your id page (eg. id.example.com) and enter it in the box. That's it! Let me know if you have any more problems.

    In fact, based on your experience I think I know how to make the instructions a bit clearer.

  3. All right,
    I later realized that it works as a proxy. Knowing that, there was no problem.

    Thanks for your service!
