If you experience slow internet connection, network experiences in the next 48 hours, know the fact that you aren’t alone. All global country’s network will face this network issue within few hours of publishing this article on this page.
Well, reasons are explainable and understandable. The key domain servers will undergo routine maintenance over the next 48 hours. While ICANN will change the cryptographic key that helps protect DNS.
Don’t get frightened, it is not forever, but will last only few hours. Russia Today reported that global Internet users might experience network connection failures as the main domain servers and its related network infrastructure will be down.
The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), is responsible for maintaining the registry of domain names and IP addresses, will be changing the cryptographic key that helps protect the Domain Name System (DNS), which is also known as the internet’s address book.
According to the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), the steps taken is greatly important to ensure a secure, stable, and resilient DNS.
“To further clarify, some internet users might be affected if their network operators or Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have not prepared for this change. However, this impact can be avoided by enabling the appropriate system security extensions,” it said.
Arseny Shcheltsin, a specialist in digital economics, reassured people that there is nothing to fear, since the main software has already been successfully updated. Outdated ISP users might face network problems while browsing.
You might not be interested in much details, probably, this registered words such as “key domain servers, cryptographic key, DNS protection” will only bring slight misunderstanding. Anyways, you can ask google to understand them more.
