Every website has an 'IP address': a long ID number that computers use to find it. Long numbers are hard for people to remember, though. So we also have domain names. And a special system – the Domain Name System (DNS) – for translating between names and numbers. Unfortunately, it's possible to interfere with that system. Wrongdoers can misdirect people who are trying to reach your site, or they can intercept your mail. DNSSEC helps to prevent that kind of thing.
How does DNSSEC work?
With DNSSEC, whenever DNS data is sent, the message has a digital signature. So computers can tell it's genuine. That means visitors can reach your site safely. And no one can tamper with your mail.
Check your own domain name
Not all providers work with DNSSEC. So it's a good idea to do a test via internet.nl on your domain name. If you aren't protected, take the matter up with your registrar.
How do you arrange DNSSEC?
Ask your registrar if he intend to support DNSSEC at short notice.
If not, choose a registrar (hosting service provider) that does support DNSSEC. See which ones do by ticking the DNSSEC filter in the registrar list.
Transfer your domain name to your chosen registrar. Your site will then be secured by DNSSEC.
