Additional security is always welcome and never a waste! We live in a very dangerous cyber world. When you check the number of threats on the Internet and the statistics they produce, enhancing your security makes total sense. So what does it mean to get additional security with a Secondary DNS service? Here you have the answer!
What is a Secondary DNS service?
Secondary DNS is a type of DNS service that allows you to add another name server or a network of multiple name servers to save copies of the zone file that include the DNS records of your domain. These copies can’t be modified. You can set up this extra name server (or name servers) to copy, automatically, the DNS records (A, SOA, NS, MX, PTR, DS, TXT, etc.) from the Primary DNS.
DNS attack types are getting more and more every year. Just as the Internet expands every day, unfortunately, online crime grows too. Motivations can be different. Extortion is on the top rank, but also boredom, people trying to prove their computing skills, the so-called hacktivism, or to take down a competitor.
In any case, different DNS attack types take advantage of the multiple Domain Name System (DNS) vulnerabilities. They have different ways to operate but all of them are dangerous for your business. Let’s get familiar with the most popular DNS attack types.
