DNSSEC for .uk domains allows you to benefit from a chain of trust within the DNS infrastructure through to your individual .uk second level domain names. For further details on the way DNSSEC works within the .uk registry, please see here. DNSSEC helps to authenticate DNS responses by verifying signatures in the chain of trust from the DNS root servers, through the TLD registry, and down the domain’s DNS servers, providing end users with higher level of trust that they have reached the correct website. Inconsistencies in this chain can cause validation to fail, resulting in the domain no longer resolving. Please note that DNSSEC is not an impenetrable solution (eg the discovery of new DNSSEC security flaws may affect the stability of domain name records). If you have any specific questions, please speak with your client manager.
By enabling DNSSEC records for the .uk domain names on your tag, you will be able to secure domain names by registering DNSSEC records with Nominet. Nominet accepts no liability towards any registrants in relation to the operation or use of DNSSEC by either party. You agree:
