More than 700 domain applications : Dot .BANK enters General Availability next week

The General Availability period of Dot .BANK is five days away; the June 24th launch is highly anticipated by a number of large financial institutions, that have applied for their brands and names in the dot .BANK gTLD.


Dot .BANK is the result of two years of proactive action by the fTLD Registry’s coalition to effectively address current and future cybersecurity threats.

As the only domain custom-built for banks by banks, dot .BANK allows banks to define a more secure way to do business, and provide a powerful tool for immediate ownership of their online brands.

During the four weeks of the dot .BANK Sunrise period, more than 700 applications were submitted by banks for a .BANK domain name

The verification agent for dot .BANK is Symantec; along with Architelos they are providing security software to monitor typical domain name abuse schemes, such as:

  • Phishing
  • Distribution of malware
  • Use of botnets
  • Spamming

A dot .BANK domain signifies that an organization has been verified as legitimate; such dot .BANK domain operators are committed to implementing security requirements that surpass existing standards.
