Hi

I'm weaning myself away from shared hosting where all I had to to was update ns1, ns2 - that's it. Now I'm needing to make sure that DNS is correct for my employer's website. With a dollop of paranoia (security) and dash of perfectionism, I'm being particularly eager to use e.g. intodns.com as a starting point.

I'm asking these questions assuming that they're related to WHM/cPanel especially.

My current registrar say: I am afraid that this is not a service that we provide.

So whose responsibility is to make sure that parts related to the DS Record are correct - strictly speaking?

How significant is this from dnscheck.pingdom advanced view:

DNSSEC

Begin testing DNSSEC for ---.org.uk.

Did not find DS record for ---.org.uk at parent.

Servers for ---.org.uk have consistent extra processing status.

Did not find DNSKEY record for ---.org.uk at child.

No DNSKEY(s) found at child, other tests skipped.

Done testing DNSSEC for ---.org.uk.

Test completed for zone ---.org.uk.

I see, so it's a Platform related matter, and not related to the Registar - e.g. DNS.

Well, it makes good sense for it to be, why not(?)

Thanks
