The success of the Internet brought new possibilities and boosted creativity in different directions. It opened the door to alternative business’ strategies, like domain parking.
Domain parking is the practice of registering a domain name without activating the common functions websites have. As a result, the owner has a static HTML web page, only informative, not interactive. Usually, the information those pages offer is the domain name’s objective and owner’s contact.
DNSSEC can be spotted as an application to, in other cases, insecure DNS. It brings cryptography within and a complete line of trust. That is a guarantee for each level and implements top-notch security for your domain.
The short DNSSEC is an acronym for Domain Name System Security Extensions. The primary DNS is reliable and fast, but its downside is that it lacks security. Back in the days when it was created, it wasn’t that of a problem. Later on, things change.
Although many IT guys still prefer to work with IPv4, its replacement is already here, IPv6. The shortage of IPv4 is a big issue, and the world keeps going, so it’s time to let it go. The final countdown for IPv4 is running. Let’s talk about what IPv6 has in store to make the best out of it!
IPv6 is the newest version (sixth) of the Internet protocol (IP). Internet protocols are sets of rules for devices to accomplish to send and receive data. This exchange of data occurs between a host and a destination (another host). Therefore, hosts must be identified. Their location is tracked through their corresponding IP addresses, and a route to reach their destination is defined for the complete data exchange to happen.
There are many ways to perform a DNS lookup. You can do it through any web browser, even from a smartphone, or if you prefer, there are different built-in commands inside most popular OSes. These commands are the NSlookup command, host command, and dig command. You can use them for a quick check of your domain and troubleshooting problems.
