Enabling DNSSEC in Lightsail & NameCheap


Hi, sorry if this is too basic stuff but I've recently read that DNSSEC is very important for site security. Now I'm hosting my site on Lightsail and I purchased my domain on NameCheap. I point my nameservers to Lightsail. NameCheap does have a DNSSEC function and I can easily enable it for my domain. after enabling it they are asking for 4 parameters "Key Tag, Algorithm, Digest Type, Digest" which they say that I need to get from my hosting provider. Where do I get the necessary information to fill in the dnssec fields? what needs to be done in that case to enable dnssec for my domain and increase security?

Thanks for using Lightsail!

Here is the instruction of how to enable DNSSEC. DS record is required to enable this feature but Lightsail Domain doesn't support DS record now. Will report this as a feature request to Lightsail PM.

Thanks again for using Lightsail!
