GoDaddy: We're ready to secure .com names with DNSSEC

Carolyn Duffy Marsan, Network World | March 23, 2011
With more than 47 million domain names under management, GoDaddy has a huge DNS infrastructure that it has upgraded to support the emerging Internet security standard known as DNSSEC for DNS Security Extensions.

Similarly, the Public Interest Registry has seen a minority of .org Web sites sign their domains using DNSSEC. Among the handful of early adopters are Comcast, which uses DNSSEC to sign its www.comcast.org, www.fandangoticket.org, www.xfiniti.org and www.tvplanner.org Web sites.

"We have had 34 registrars pass operational tests and evaluation to provide DNSSEC," says PIR CEO Brian Cute. "We think this is an important development. This is a chain of trust, including registries, registrars and end users. We are encouraged by the registrar take-up of DNSSEC. . . Having .com signed should help with accelerating this trend."
