In order for us to be safe online, a complicated puzzle of security measures must fit together just right. An extension of the domain name system, which makes sure you get to the right place when you enter a web page, is one such security measure. If you wanted to go to myfavouritebank.no, you can be sure that that’s where you end up if this mechanism has been activated. 

Please note, however, that even if you go to the right address, this does not necessarily mean that the content on that site is safe. 

The security mechanism, known by its abbreviation DNSSEC, is offered for Norwegian domain names, provided that the individual registrar has implemented it for its customers. Check to see if your registrar offers this service and if your domain name is secure. 

Use the look-up service to see if your domain name has been secured with DNSSEC.  The image below shows you what to look for.
