We have changed the main service domain from WebHost.al to WebHostAL.net
because .AL Domain Extension unfortunately at the moment lacks DNSSEC implementation.
Since we process passwords, billing, payments and other sensitive information DNSSEC is a must.
What is DNSSEC?
Domain name system security extensions (DNSSEC) are a set of protocols that add a layer of security to the domain name system (DNS) lookup and exchange processes, which have become integral in accessing websites through the Internet.
DNSSEC is aimed at strengthening trust in the Internet by helping to protect users from redirection to fraudulent websites and unintended addresses. In such a way, malicious activities like cache poisoning, pharming, and man-in-the-middle attacks can be prevented.
DNSSEC authenticates the resolution of IP addresses with a cryptographic signature, to make sure that answers provided by the DNS server are valid and authentic. In case DNSSEC is properly enabled for your domain name, the visitors can be ensured that they are connecting to the actual website corresponding to a particular domain name.
