Cyber hijacking is an ongoing online threat. It’s not just about protecting access to your web pages. You also need to be concerned about the security of the domain names your company purchases. Domain name registrars are one of the fundamental systems that your business relies on, and their service forms the foundation for everything from your main site to your social media outreach processes. Choosing the right Domain Name Registrar is therefore critical for ensuring the security of your business.

The top-level .BOT domain was launched by Amazon in 2018, and has quickly become a success story. The domain is designed to accompany Amazon’s strategy for community-led AI development. Learn more about Amazon’s impact on the TLD industry.
It does this by allowing the developers of bots to publish their creations on a searchable domain. Bots are small, AI-driven pieces of software that allow users to interact with their devices in new and intuitive ways. Some of the most popular bots have been those developed for Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant, which add functionality to the base AI that Amazon provides.
.ETH domains make blockchain wallets user friendly. Although blockchain wallets are the next big thing in storing assets, existing wallet names are cumbersome to share and communicate.

Another community bank has rebranded to a .BANK domain name. The .BANK domain extension is one of 1200 new top-level-domain extensions launched a few years ago to provide consumers and businesses greater choices for internet addresses. What distinguishes .BANK from most of the other extensions is that it has strict eligibility criteria and mandatory security requirements for all active websites. As a result, websites ending in .BANK are considered more secure by consumers than bank websites ending in .COM or .NET.
