Every domain name work over the mechanism of DNS called Domain Name System which is also known as Domain Name Server.
By default, you are provided with a set of standard DNS functions that enables you to manage your DNS records and zones but at Sangkrit.net you have an option to upgrade your standard DNS functions to Premium DNS as that offers you more control and flexibility than standard DNS.
Helps You Always Stay Online
Relying on one DNS server creates more chances of a single point of failure. Because when the primary server will go down or fail or is hit by an attack, your visitors no longer get access to your website.
Here, comes the use of secondary nameservers so that it can share the load of incoming domain requests and the primary server doesn’t get overloaded as its failure in processing requests causes denial of the service requested by the client.
You must have noticed that sometimes the web browser takes time to process requests and open a website or shows an error of too many requests or request time out. Secondary DNS saves you from that, it empowers you to back up your DNS zone files using a secondary set of nameservers so that your website never goes offline.
Increases Your Website’s Security
A secured web page is more likely to be shown on search engines, of course, if it has the quality content the user expects.
Premium DNS offers you DNSSEC that increases your online security by authenticating the origin of DNS data. It makes the resolver cryptographically verify the data received is actually coming from the zone where it originated.
It also helps the resolves to know that the data hasn’t been modified in transit and is signed by the zone owner with private keys.
Lets You Update SOA Records
Apart from this it also enables you to update SOA i.e. the Start of Authority records which has zone caching information. The zone has the administrator’s email address and the primary nameserver for the zone. It also holds incrementing numbers which, when updated, trigger the DNS to reload the zone data. You can request to have these numbers updated.
Have More Zone Records Per Domain
It also allows you to increase the number of zone records, you can manage your zone file with 1500 DNS records per domain to give you more control, redundancy, and better performance.
You can upgrade anytime from standard DNS to Premium DNS right from your Sangkrit.net account by accessing your Domain Settings and choosing the option to add Premium DNS.
