You can easily make use of premium DNS to keep your website safe and always available to your visitors. Likewise every domain name is given a series of numbers called IP address — for example, the IP address for anything.com is 70.289.342.211. It is the IP number only that your browser uses to locate your or any particular website.
Now whenever you type a domain name into your web browser, the DNS i.e Domain Name Server looks through a database to find the IP address you have requested in the form of domain name and then directs your browser to the correct website content.
You might have noticed sometimes some websites take a lot of time to process your request. It is during this DNS address “look up” where you can experience problems in performance, accessibility and security.
Everything from your domain not being found to hackers redirecting your visitors to a fake website in order to steal their personal information. Such issues are quite common on world wide web.
For instance: Slow DNS response can cause “website not found” errors. Have you ever typed in a website address and it takes a long time to connect? Or maybe you get a “site not found” error? This can happen when the DNS server is slow in responding and can’t determine what site content to give you. If it takes too long, it can just “time out” and give an error message.
Another DNS issue is when hackers redirect your visitors to a fake website. An even scarier issue is when a hacker interferes in the look up process – a vulnerability that exists with all DNS systems worldwide.
Hackers can actually give the browser a different IP address that redirects your visitors to a fake website that looks like yours. Once your visitors are there, the hacker will be able to access any information your customer provides, from usernames and passwords to credit card numbers.
