How to Enable and Disable DNSSEC for domains at Epik.com?

What is DNSSEC?

DNSSEC is nothing but Domain Name System Security which strengthens authentication in DNS using digital signatures based on public-key cryptography. With DNSSEC, it’s not DNS queries and responses themselves that are cryptographically signed, but rather DNS data itself is signed by the owner of the data.

Step 2:

Under the “Registrar” tab, click on the menu icon of any specific domain and Go to “DNS & WHOIS” -> SET NAME SERVERS.

Step 3:

Ensure NameServers are set to “NS3.EPIK.COM” & “NS4.EPIK.COM” and save it.

Step4:

Now click on the “DNSSEC” menu tab as shown below

Step 5:

Notice that the option “Enable DNSSEC” is checked which means DNSSEC is already enabled for the specific domain.
