What is DNSSEC?
DNSSEC is a supplement to the Domain Name System (DNS). It fixes a number of vulnerabilities in DNS, making the 'signage' of the internet safer and more trusted. Activating DNSSEC on your domain name therefore ensures that your domain name is additionally protected against unauthorized use.
What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System, the basis of the internet. DNS controls all traffic over the internet. All servers on the internet have a unique number: the IP address. DNS ensures that where you use domain names in, for example, e-mail or your browser, that these are translated to the IP address of that server (where the e-mail or website is running). If you for example www.hoasted.com is typed, a quick search for the IP address follows: 22.214.171.124 and the information is sent from the relevant server to the browser of your computer, tablet or mobile.
What DNSSEC does
DNSSEC stands for Domain Name System Security Extensions, which means extra secure DNS. DNSSEC adds a digital signature to the DNS protocol, making it much more difficult to forge the results of a DNS request. Technical: this is done through encryption with a public and a private key. DNSSEC is for SSL what domain names are for websites.
Why use DNSSEC?
Forging a DNS result could mean that a user ends up on a forged website or mail server without realizing it. Hackers do this by, for example, rebuilding banks' sites and then using hacked computers or WIFI networks to change the DNS for that bank to the hacked site, so that they get the data from the affected bank customers.
