VeriSign: Give Us Your DNS
August 26, 2002
Looking to keep its dominance as a domain registrar, VeriSign (Quote, Company Info) Monday took the wraps of a series of services it hopes will satisfy even the most finicky systems administrator.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based said its Managed DNS Services suite has expanded to include complete outsourcing, in-house control and a combo package that lets the domain administrator roll their own.
VeriSign said its new services should help avoid the dreaded "Page Not Found" or "DNS Error" when you go to a Web site.
Managed DNS Services director Ed Choi says to do that they separate the world into two halves.
"From a hosting perspective, we see the world as public and private," said Choi. "Some of our customers tell us that they hand us to take care of their domain management. They don't want to edit at the command line, while others want to do it themselves. What impresses me most is how easy we can make it for both worlds."
The new software suite comes a week after its controversial call for a waiting list service was passed by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), despite objections raised earlier by one of its supporting organizations.
VeriSign said its new software suite includes tools, redundancy, and physical dispersion necessary to maintain 100 percent uptime and streamline the management of the domain name system (DNS) infrastructure that supports e-mail, e-commerce, or other Web applications.
