Once upon a time, the typical organization owned a few dozen dot-com domains and some special Top-Level Domains (TLDs.) Life was easier back then. with over 1,400 available TLDs, organizations own and manage hundreds to thousands of domains – each subject to:
- Multiple zone files (resource records),
- Mandatory TLS certificate-based encryption
- DNS security settings (DNSSEC, DMARC, SPF, etc.)
- All mapping to a network of DNS providers
Change management tools for this mission-critical digital infrastructure can be rudimentary. Email threads and spreadsheets are commonly used “solutions” to domain management.
Disconnected domain registrar and DNS admin portals are not much better.
MANAGING DOMAINS, DNS AND TLS/SSL CERTIFICATES WITH MULTIPLE, SEPARATE TOOLS CREATES PROBLEMS
|Domains and DNS managed on multiple systems||Risk of error, manual labor steps, excess cost|
|Domains disconnected from DNS settings||Inefficient, error-prone|
|Manual change control processes||Time-consuming, costly|
|Weak security ie shared password access||Non-compliance, security risk|
Consolidate your Domains, DNS, and TLS certificates to a single, unified control point.
Authentic Web solves problems by integrating domain management with DNS and TLS certificate platforms. We can connect to your choice of DNS environment OR we can provide direct integration between our domain management platform and enterprise-grade DNS, partnering with Dyn (an Oracle Company.)
Either way, your IT staff and Digital Marketing team will thank you. Integrating domain management with DNS on a single control system is easier, more efficient, secure and compliant.
