Frequently Asked Questions
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain, like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be
purchased by anyone, .BANK quickly verifies that the website or email is authentically from our
bank, so you can interact with confidence when you see the '.BANK' at the end of our email
address and website URL.
How is .BANK more secure?
All banks are verified and authenticated by fTLD, the .BANK administrator, prior to registering
their .BANK domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK
domain is an eligible organization. Hackers and bad actors can't get a .BANK domain to create
lookalike domains for phishing and spoofing, as they can in '.com' and other publicly available
With the '.BANK' visual authentication cue in place you can quickly confirm emails and websites
of ours are real, and avoid interactions that could lead to identity theft and financial fraud. This
authentication is also an additional layer of protection for internal and vendor communications,
helping to secure against potential breaches.
All banks within the .BANK domain must also implement additional Security Requirements to
help secure their sites and email, and protect them, their vendors and their customers from
phishing, spoofing and other cyberattacks. All banks using .BANK are monitored for compliance
with these security requirements on an ongoing basis.
Do I need to do anything differently now that you're in .BANK?
Our email addresses and website URL now end in .BANK. From now on, before interacting with
emails from us, and before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look
for the '.BANK' to authenticate the email or website is ours.
Our .com email addresses are forwarding to our new .BANK email addresses, and our .com
website redirects to our new .BANK site, but over time you should update your address book
and bookmark for our site.
You're the first '.BANK' I've seen, why haven't all the other banks moved?
The move to .BANK is a business decision every bank must make, and plan for, based on its
priorities and resources. We decided it was a priority for us to enhance our security and provide
our customers with an easy way to authenticate our email communications and website.
