What is DNSSEC?

DNSSEC stands for Domain Name System Security Extensions and it validates responses to DNS queries before they are returned to the client. The client sends a query asking for a particular DNS information with a cryptographic key, and the client’s DNS server retrieves the answer and validates it using another cryptographic key.

As a leading Dynamic DNS and managed DNS service provider, our service boasts rapid propagation with low TTLs and reliable device connectivity. Users hosting their domain names with us or using our dynamic DNS service have the option to enable DNSSEC in a few simple steps.

If your domain name is registered with us, go to the Domain Registration settings and check if it has Dynamic DNS Service DNSSEC  icon. If there is, the DS would have been added automatically and you can verify that the DS record has been added for you or add it yourself. If the domain registration settings do not have DNSSEC, you may open open a support ticket with the DS record to have the DS record added.

If your domain name is registered with other companies, check with them on how to have the DS record added.

If your current registrar does not allow you to add a DS record, you may transfer your domain name to us to take advantage of our DNSSEC secured dynamic DNS service as well as DNS hosting services.
