Purpose of Private DNS server

As the name suggests, a Private DNS server appears to be something personalized. It links your network and the Domain Name System server, protecting data from being intercepted by third parties. They are DNS networks that are not linked to the Public DNS. Consider it a Private library with a small collection of books. This has both advantages and disadvantages. Yes, you will be unable to read certain types of books. Nevertheless, there is one advantage: no one will know what you are reading because your library is secret.

Furthermore, we refer to Private as DNS over TLS (Transport Layer Security) or DNS over HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure). This is because when you use DoT (DNS over TLS) or DoH (DNS over HTTPS), all DNS queries are encrypted. This makes it far more difficult for malicious third parties to monitor your online activity.

What is DNSSEC?

Domain Name System Security Extensions or, simply for short, DNSSEC combines several security measures that implement cryptographic authentication of the DNS information. It serves to prove that the DNS data has not been modified, although it still does not encrypt the DNS records. It acts similar to a chain of trust that supports verifying each step that a DNS query makes. 

At its origin, the DNS (Domain Name System) is fast and stable. However, it has one great downside, which is exactly lacking security. When we look back in the days at its creation, it was not that big of a deal. But, unfortunately, things have changed, and more protection is highly required.

Primary DNS Zone is one of the essential parts when it comes to managing your domain name. Let’s break it down and explain a little bit more about it.

DNS – meaning 

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical system. It helps with managing data correlated with Internet domain names. For humans is easier to memorize domain names rather than numbers. So DNS is making things simple, and one of its main tasks is also known as name resolution. That is the assignment of domain names to IP addresses. The Domain Name System is essential and one of the bases of the technical structure of the Internet.

On the technical side, the DNS is a network of nameservers. The connection between nameservers and domain names is, in other words explaining where the data is really located. Therefore, it is important to understand the concept of the DNS zone.
