Leading Registrars Supporting DNSSEC

As the world's third largest domain, Internet security takes utmost precedence at .ORG, The Public Interest Registry (PIR). On June 23, we reinforced our commitment by announcing at ICANN Brussels that .ORG is now the first generic top-level domain (TLD) to offer full DNSSEC deployment. Coming off the heels of this momentous launch, we are pleased that three leading registrars — GoDaddy, DynDNS and NamesBeyondnow support Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) for .ORG domain names, adding an extra layer of security of all .ORG domain name holders. Simply put, registrars like GoDaddy, who handles more than 30% of web registrations worldwide, are now a critical player and influence in widespread DNSSEC deployment.

By supporting DNSSEC, GoDaddy, DynDNS and NamesBeyond offer added security protection to their customers by enabling .ORG website owners to sign his or her domain name with DNSSEC validation keys. Registrants will benefit from the added ability to thwart the increased predominance of attacks like pharming, cache poisoning, DNS redirection and domain hijacking — all of which have been used to commit fraud, distribute malware, and identity theft. Additionally, DNSSEC upgrades the current Internet infrastructure by protecting Internet resolvers from forged DNS data.

Thanks to the hard work of GoDaddy, NamesBeyond, and DynDNS, the chain of trust is nearing completion and gaining strength with every signing. In addition, there are at least another twenty four DNSSEC accredited registrars poised to roll out their DNSSEC implementation with .ORG in the coming weeks. Congrats to all!
