In this article, we'll show you how to enable DNSSEC support for your domain.

  • To be able to use the function described here, your contract must have the optional Domain Guard extension. You can add Domain Guard at any time.
  • The desired domain has a DNSSEC-compatible extension.
  • The domain must be assigned IONOS name servers.
  • Log in to IONOS.
