As informed by Russia Today global internet, consumers might observe network failures as the main domain servers and its associated network foundation will be down for some time in the coming two days. In addition to this, global internet users could also experience complexity in obtaining web pages and making communication.
Also Device configuration changes, Operational human errors and mismanagement of devices, Link failure caused due to fibre cable cuts or network congestion. The burden of sustaining an evenly running internet also lies in the grip of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) which is a company that supports customers with Internet access. Data may be transmitted using several technologies, including dial-up, DSL, cable modem, wireless or dedicated high-speed interconnects
This has been constrained to reverse the rising episodes of cyber attacks, the ICANN said. “To further clarify, some internet users might be affected if their network workers or Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have not adapted for this change. However, this impact can be dodged by sanctioning the adapted system security extensions. The global internet shutdown is necessary for ensuring a secure, stable and resilient DNS.” said the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA). The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will haul out sustainable work during this time period by shifting the cryptographic key that helps assure the internet’s address book or the Domain Name System (DNS).
Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet’s identical of a phone book. They sustain a handbook of domain names and change them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. When you enter a URL into your Web browser, your DNS server uses its resources to resolve the name into the IP address for the appropriate Web server. This is essential because, although domain identification is easy for computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses, people to remember. Instead, you just connect through a domain name server, also called a DNS server or name server, which manages a massive database that maps domain names to IP addresses.
