Protect Domains Using DNSSEC

ArvanCloud Protects Your DNSSEC Supported Domains Against DNS Spoofing.

What is DNSSEC?

The internet performance is dependent on IPs. DNS service allows finding your desired content with a single word instead of numbers since it converts each domain name to an IP address and vice versa. Therefore, it is one of the essential internet services.
However, this service is also vulnerable to attacks that would redirect their traffic to illegitimate websites. DNSSEC is the solution for securing the service.

ArvanCloud and DNSSEC

ArvanCloud, being an authoritative DNS server, can provide you with a DNS record so that you can activate DNSSEC for your domain. Therefore, you can secure your domain against DNS attacks.

The Importance of Using DNSSEC

Using the internet is an inevitable part of the day. Whether you have a business or own a leading one, you are vulnerable to DNS attacks if your domain’s DNSSEC protection is not activated. Changing and defining new records will allow for encrypted DNS records so that your website is immune to DSN Spoofing.


The DNS service has no internal mechanism to protect its transferrable data. DNSSEC allows DNS records to be received by the resolver and verified to determine the absence of an illegitimate DNS server. <br> The process of resolve after DNSSEC activation is as follows:


The user enters in their browser. The browser, first, checks Cache to find the related IP. If the IP is not found in the cache, a request is sent to the DNS server according to which it is configured (Recursive Resolver)


The Recursive Resolver, which can be the DNS server the ISP has provided for you, first searches its Cache for the IP address. If no results are found, a request is sent to the Root server.


The root server responds to this request by sending the IP address related to the domain’s TLD and the DS record to the recursive resolver.


After receiving the IP address, the recursive resolver requests the domain’s IP address to the TLD.


TLD sends the associated IP addresses of ArvanCloud DNS servers containing the domain’s records and the DS record for the recursive resolver.


The recursive resolver sends a request to access the domain’s records of the ArvanCloud DNS server.


ArvanCloud DNS server sends RRSIG and DNSKEY records.


Now, the recursive resolver has accessed all the required records and has already verified the servers. Then, the IP address for is sent to the browser to access the secured content.
