Is Your Domain Protected with DNSSEC?

The whole fabric of the Internet is based on trust. When you type in a domain name like Facebook.com, your computer or phone magically gets you to the right web site. If you use an app, the same thing happens behind the scenes.

That address is subject to change and it is something that anyone can look up. Facebook operates many data centers do you may actually get a different response depending upon where you are in the world. Once it has the IP address, it knows how to make a connection.
