When fTLD launched .BANK in May 2015, to provide a critical layer of protection against cyberattacks that lead to breaches, identity theft and financial fraud, we reserved numerous Common Community Names. To ensure that banks seeking .BANK protection against business email compromise (BEC), phishing and spoofing attacks have access to the specific domain they want, we’ve decided to release additional Common Community domains.
On Monday, May 11, 2020 at 12:00pm EDT, fTLD began accepting Verification Applications (“Applications”) (accessible here: https://www.register.bank/get-started/) for most of the remaining names (see list below and the hyphenated versions may also be available (e.g., FirstSecurity.BANK and First-Security.BANK)).
The rules guiding this process are:
- Applications are considered on a first-come-first-served basis;
- To ensure a fair process for all, Applications received before the specified time on May 11th will not be considered;
- Domains are subject to the standard registration fee;
- If fTLD receives more than one Application for the same name, the applicants beyond the first will be notified of their place in the processing queue;
- Successful applicants must complete the registration in 15-business days.
The following domains have received applications:
To see if a domain has been registered, use the look-up feature.
