an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">DNSSEC is the abbreviation for 'an>an style="font-size: small;">Domain Name System Security Extensions'. It is a set of extensions to the domain name system (<abbr class="glossary" title="Domain Name Server">DNSabbr>), basically to allow clients to verify the authenticity and integrity of <abbr class="glossary" title="Domain Name Server">DNSabbr> records.an>

DNSSEC Support at Joker.com

Joker.com enables you to 'activate' and configure DNSSEC for your domains - at least for those supporting DNSSEC, of course. Some TLDs supporting DNSSEC currently are:

  • .com
  • .net
  • .org
  • .tv
  • .cc
  • .de

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"> an>

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">This list will expand as more TLDs implement DNSSEC.an>

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">To enable DNSSEC, please login on Joker.com and visit '<a title="Joker.com Domainlist" href="/goto/modify">My Domainsa>'. Chose the (supported) domain you want to edit. There you will find the section "DNSSEC" to change the DNSSEC settings.an>

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">You will also find some examples there, but you probably need to know a bit about DNSSEC, and also about implementation details of your nameserver provider.an>

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"> an>

an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">Please note: Joker.com nameservers currently do not yet support DNSSEC records. In case you use the free Joker.com nameservice, you have to engage another nameserver provider.an>

an style="font-size: small;">an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"> an>an>

an style="font-size: small;">an style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Resellers will find similar commands to operate DNSSEC using DMAPI and <a href="https://rpanel.io">RPanela>.an>an>
