Afilias and DotAsia jointly announced last week that domain name system security extensions has been enabled for the .ASIA top-level domain.
The signing of the .ASIA domain enhances global security and reinforces .ASIA's commitment to become the Internet identity for businesses from Asia as well as those expanding to Asia.
DNSSEC introduces digital signatures to the DNS infrastructure and automatically ensures that users are not hijacked and taken to an unintended destination. Afilias and DotAsia recommend that domain registrars and resellers in Asia plan DNSSEC deployment in their 2011 development schedule. Both companies aim to help proliferate the standard within the Internet community in Asia.
