As the global leader in domain names, Verisign powers the invisible navigation that takes people to where they want to go on the Internet. For more than 15 years, Verisign has operated the infrastructure for a portfolio of top-level domains that today include .com, .net, .tv, .edu, .gov, .jobs, .name and .cc, as well as two of the world’s 13 Internet root servers. Verisign’s product suite also includes Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection Services, iDefense Security Intelligence Services and Managed DNS.

As the continued growth of IP-based services and movement to the cloud make doing business more complex, companies are more dependent on network service and application availability than ever before.

Companies need a way to keep their web-based operations available and reliable, a solution that does not require major investment in network infrastructure, the stringing together of disparate point products or services, or the need to hire experts in networking or intelligence.

Verisign is in a unique position to offer a solution to network availability and reliability. That is because we have the existing infrastructure, expertise and service delivery capabilities—as well as a proven, globally deployed network with scale and capacity.

  • More than half (56 per cent) of the world's DNS hosts rely on the Verisign .net and .com infrastructure.
  • Operational accuracy and stability of .com and .net services 100 per cent of the time over the past 15 years has earned Verisign the reputation as one of the most reliable and trusted networks in the world.
