Managing Premium DNS

Domain Name System (DNS) Records are used to control and indicate the location of resources on the internet. They do this by translating Domain Names into their corresponding IP Address.

It's a technology that we use every day without ever thinking about what's really happening at the back-end. However, DNS is a fairly old technology and there are already several ways that attackers can exploit weaknesses in the regular, internet-wide system to damage sites and services. That's where Premium DNS comes in.

What Is Premium DNS

Premium DNS is a service that offers much more than just Standard DNS. It gives you a stable and secure cloud service that utilises multiple locations to ensure your DNS hosting is the fastest possible.

Premium DNS also has advanced DDoS Protection, which means that you will have advanced safeguards against online attacks. In addtion, it allows you to set all types of DNS Records and take complete control over your DNS within your Account Manager.

Premium DNS is recommended for all businesses and customers who seek topnotch security for their website.

Note: For all other locales, this service upgrade can be added to any existing domain name. For UK, as per Registry policies, these features are already included in every account upon registration.
