What is DNS (Domain Name Server)
- On Internet, every domain name is given a series of numbers (under A record) known as an IP address for example, IP address for www.google.com is 220.127.116.11. It’s this number that your browser uses to locate a particular website. You can open the website by using this IP address as well.
- When we visit any website/domain on internet, our Internet Service provider’s system tries to resolves the Domain DNS (Domain Name Server) through a huge database of domains to find the IP address and then fetches the data from that server and directs your browser to the correct website content.
Why do I need to manage it?
When system is performing a DNS look-up, at that time our system is shaking hands with several servers and this whole to-fro data transfer process consumes a lot of time, which causes issues with the performance, accessibility and security and can take your website offline or increase in not found errors or even redirecting your visitors to any other malicious website and stealing user information by hackers. Premium DNS (DNSSEC enabled) creates an unbreakable “chain of trust” between the visitor’s browser and your server, verifying that the visitor is actually arriving at your website.
Slow DNS response can cause “website not found” errors
On several occasions due to slow DNS resolution, websites runs slow and also increases the chances of not found errors. If the system is just too slow then it can just time out and give the error. Premium DNS makes sure that your DNS is fast and always available round the clock.
Hackers can compromise your website
A hacker can easily interfere with the loosely managed DNS process. It’s a very common DNS weakness that can enable any hacker to manipulate the DNS routing and redirect your website to their similarly looking malicious website and steal customer’s information like credit cards, usernames, passwords.
