CooliceHost: The importance of DNS and the Website Application Firewall

When it comes to safeguarding your website, two crucial elements you need to consider are DNS and the Website Application Firewall (WAF). Both play a significant role in providing security and protection against potential online threats.

DNS, short for Domain Name System, is responsible for translating human-readable domain names into machine-readable IP addresses. It acts as a directory that ensures users are directed to the correct website when they enter the domain name in their web browser. Essentially, it serves as the internet’s phonebook. By using a secure and reliable DNS service, you can prevent unauthorized access, ensure website availability, and protect against malicious activities.

On the other hand, the Website Application Firewall acts as a shield that safeguards your website from various cyber attacks. It monitors and filters incoming web traffic, detecting and blocking any suspicious or malicious activities, hence preventing unauthorized access to your website. The WAF acts as a protective layer, constantly monitoring and analyzing website traffic to ensure its security and integrity.

Combining DNS and the Website Application Firewall makes for a powerful security strategy for your website. By integrating these two technologies, you can effectively protect your website against a broad range of online threats, including DDoS attacks, malware infections, SQL injections, and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

In conclusion, understanding the significance of DNS and the Website Application Firewall is essential to safeguarding your website. Implementing a reliable DNS service and a robust WAF can greatly enhance your website’s security, ensuring its uninterrupted availability and protecting it from potential cyber threats.

When you initially add your website, our firewall servers quickly retrieve it and ensure its availability on our network, which spans across the globe. Within a matter of seconds, your website is successfully hosted on our servers and prepared to welcome visitors.

The subsequent procedure involves activating the website’s application firewall by making a WAF change. Typically, the software on our servers is setup to protect your web-based application from any threat and in additional you can even add more options, including modues, CDN services, scanning and more.
