DNS is not essentially equipped with a security mechanism to secure website connections and prevent visitors' malicious redirection. DNSSEC has been added as an extension protocol to DNS to strengthen the security of both visitors and websites.
Using cryptographic signatures along with existing DNS records, DNSSEC creates a secured DNS. This enhanced domain name server offers a safer connection, protected from forged DNS answers. ArvanCloud provides an easy-to-use DNSSEC.
