DNSSEC is an extension of the Domain Name System (DNS) and serves to protect you from fraud. DNSSEC ensures that the website displayed on your screen really is the one you wanted to access.

CDS Status Check
With a CDS record (Child DS record), the name server operator can transfer the required data to the registry to activate, renew or deactivate DNSSEC for a domain name. With our CDS Status Check, you can check whether the changes transferred via CDS are correct and will be published.

Registry Lock
Locking a domain name with Registry Lock means barring it from being modified via EPP, the registrar-registry interface. Thus, the risk for your domain name to fall into the wrong hands or to be unreachable due to technical errors can be minimised.
