How To Enable DNSSEC Domain Feature With Cloudflare

Hello guys, you may have seen about this feature in the features in your domain. DNSSEC as the name combination from DNS & SEC, The first time I got to know it I thought it must have to do with DNS security in a way from the word DNS and SECurity right… Hehe. But actually dnssec stands for “Domain Name System Security Extension” and don’t worry i mistaken either. In short way, this feature is a form of authentication security from the domain to the server, if the data that communicates from the domain and the server shoul validate if the data is really from the appropriate server. basically, it uses the some kind of key sign so to pass each other that it becomes more secure.

Ok, right off the boat, to use DNSSEC on Cloudflare is really easy, just copy and paste the key from Cloudflare to your domain manager (depending on your domain registrar). For example, you can log in to your Cloudflare dashboard and look for the menu as below.

Select the DNS tab > Scroll down until you find this menu

After you find the menu as above, then you can immediately click “Enable DNSSEC”. Then you will be presented on the page as below.

Below is an example of the registrar that I use, the name is Namesilo, so for example, as shown below.
