Protect your domain with DNSSEC

DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) is the networking standard that secures your website's DNS. It allows the browser to authenticate the source, avoiding hacker attacks on your servers and guaranteeing the authenticity and integrity of your domain.

DNSSEC activation is included for all domains registered with specific extensions, by accessing the Manager Panel.

This protocol secures communications with DNS servers by digitally signing their records. The process guarantees clients to confirm the veracity of their source.

Come funziona un DNS

A DNS server is one of the most important services on the Internet.
In fact, it has the fundamental role of converting the names of hosts connected to a network into IP addresses and vice versa. In our case it is necessary to obtain the IP address corresponding to a domain. The IP address allows you to reach the web server that hosts the site you want to access.

In particular:

A user enters the URL of your website in the browser.


The browser sends the translation request of your website to the Internet service provider's DNS server.


The server returns the relative IP address, used by the browser to access information.

With DNSSEC the browser is sure of the authenticity of the IP address that
it was communicated to him.

Why activate DNSSEC

To date, there are technologies to the detriment of DNS servers, developed by hackers who are thus able to direct traffic to their servers.

By falsifying DNS responses and showing fake pages to those who surf a website, they manage, for example, to steal your personal data.

This is why you should enable the DNSSEC protocol: assure your website users that they are visiting a safe space, where the risk of third party attacks is significantly reduced, and where their personal data they are not threatened.
