Why .BANK

A .BANK domain creates additional layers of security against cyberattacks that can’t be replicated in .com, preventing the creation of lookalike domains used in phishing and spoofing attacks. Click to Expand

Financial institutions are currently the most phished organizations in the world with 97% of financial service organizations having had their domain spoofed to target customers and business partners. Over 92% of all breaches stem from phishing, increasingly these phishing attempts contain no malicious links or attachments that current scanning software can identify and block. These increasingly complex social engineering attacks, that rely on human error, are on the rise. It is more critical than ever that your emails, websites, information requests and authorizations can be easily authenticated.

Your .BANK domain enables employees, customers and vendors to be a part of your security solution by “looking for the .BANK”, so they don’t interact with emails and sites created by bad actors. Avoiding these interactions helps to prevent situations that lead to breaches, or identity theft and financial fraud.

We can help you create a plan for adding .BANK Security to your bank in just 2-3 weeks for under $1,000.

What .BANK Means to You

.BANK is a verified, gated domain like .gov or .edu, but for banks. Replacing .com, .BANK quickly verifies that the website or email is authentically from a bank, so you can interact with confidence in your bank's more secure services.

Identity Theft and Financial Fraud often stem from either a data breach, over 92% of all breaches last year began with phishing emails, or phishing attacks on individuals. Identifying phishing emails and spoofed sites has become increasingly difficult as hackers have grown more sophisticated. However, banks who have moved to .BANK from .com are easy to identify via the .BANK at the end of their website URL and email addresses. Click to Expand

All banks within the .BANK domain must implement additional Security Requirements to help protect them, their vendors and their customers, and are regularly monitored for compliance with these requirements.

When you see an email address or website URL that ends in .BANK you can rest assured it is a bank, and it's more secure.

How its More Secure

*All .BANK domains are verified and authenticated by fTLD, the .BANK administrator, prior to registering their domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK domain is an eligible organization, that the registrant is who they say they are, and has the permission and authority of their bank to register the domain on their behalf. This means hackers can’t get a lookalike domain for phishing and spoofing. Banks in .BANK must also implement Security Requirements to use their domain, and are continuously monitored for compliance with these requirements.
