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.
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.
Spam has become a daily nuisance for everybody. The number of spam e-mails can overwhelm our inboxes, reducing the space and chances for important messages to be received. Besides, they are a constant and real threat to our security. Scams, phishing attacks, malware can be attached to them, risking our personal information, business, and systems.
Fortunately, developers constantly improve and innovate with tools to defeat, or at least mitigate, these threats. DKIM is an example.
Domain Name System (DNS) is a naming database system. It is locating and translating domain names into IP addresses. Imagine it is like a directory or even like a mobile’s contacts list. Each one of the names corresponds with numbers, and they are accurately matched. DNS directory is spread worldwide. This system operates daily. It helps to explore and reach millions of domain names every day. Without Domain Name System, we would have to remember each site’s IP address to visit it. This sounds nearly impossible, considering how many sites are out there.
