Since 2015, .BANK's mission is to become a trusted, verified, more secure and easily-identifiable space on the Internet for the global banking community. Towards this, fTLD Registry Services, LLC, the operator of .BANK, has created a number of security requirements governing the .BANK space around eligibility and security safeguards.
Only verified members of the global banking community are eligible to register .BANK domains. As you know, the "community" is strictly defined and the name selection rules are equally restrictive. Your domain name must correspond to a trademark, trade name, or service mark of your banking organization and not be deceiving or detrimental to the community or its banking customers.
Website and transactional security is a high priority requirement for the .BANK name space. Don't let technical resource limitations cripple the beginning stages of your .BANK domain name usage. We have a solution to the DNS service requirements (#23, #26-28) to ensure your site and domain name integrity and security.
How are my DNS configured for my .BANK domain?
2 DNS servers are created, NS11 and N12, as child name servers on an Anycast DNS cloud for redundancy and performance. We will set this up for you if the domain is registered through our services. You will need to provide us the A record or URL to where your domain will be pointed.
Where can I forward my .BANK domain name to?
At the moment the registry is allowing .BANK domains to be forwarded to your main website as long as it’s under HTTPS through the use of a valid SSL. This is momentary as the registry has explicitly mentioned this will not be allowed.
Can I use email with my .BANK domain name?
By default we set a non-sender DMARC record on your zone. This is fine for domains which don’t intend to send out emails. If you plan on sending emails, the registry requires you publish DMARC records. You will need to contact your email provider or system administrator for guidance on setting this up. Once you have the appropriate records they can be added to your zone.

Per the registry requirements, you will need to secure your .BANK with an SSL certificate and make sure your guests are directed to HTTPS://. Contact us to find out your options.
