The Domainsure security and business continuity platform is the result of 20 years experience in DNS, naming and domain policy which has driven home the lesson:
Domains and DNS are the #1 most overlooked blindspots that threatens your infrastructure.
We care, however, so we made this platform so that we can monitor all aspects of your critical naming infrastructure for you. From IP issues like typosquats and phishing attacks against your users, to operational aspects such as the security of your DNS infrastructure and the health of your domain names; this system monitors everything.
In addition to tracking over 100 possible failure vectors against each one of your domains, the system also gains visibility around your network edges and even into the further reaches of the net, including the Dark Web to provide another layer of threat detection which effectively compliments your existing toolkit.
At key points in the domain lifecycle your interests and your Registrar's best interests can diverge: Registrars "snipe" valuable domains, they datamine their own customer domain expiries for auction prospects. Beyond a certain point your domain may be worth more to them if you let it lapse than if you renew it. Talk about a conflict of interest!
This is why we've designed our Domain Registrar platform with two very important features that set it apart from almost every other registrar in the market:
Never Expire Protection: As long as your account is in good standing, we will never allow your domain names to expire or be de-activated.
Never Monetize Guarantee: We will never route your traffic to pages that generate advertising revenue, nor will we ever auction or take ownership of your domains. If you decide to explicity let a domain name expire, or if your account becomes lapse, we will allow the domains to delete and return them to the registration pool.
Your domain will never become more valuable to us than you are as a client, guaranteed!
Unrelated third parties can and do covet your production names or unused domains you had the prescience to acquire and have been holding in reserve for the right time.
Submarine trademark filings followed by an attempt to grab your name via dispute proceedings are sadly, not uncommon.
In many cases the aggressor is banking on your unfamiliarity with the resolution process or lack of deep pockets for an easy "win" in the resolution procedure, one that awards them your name.
When somebody tries this against a domain protected by DomainSure, your case can be defended by one of the top domain and Intellectual Property law firms in the business at a fraction of the cost. We retain the top domain name attorneys for this purpose, and provide deep discounts that increase as you go up in service level. In fact, Enterprise clients receive one free defense each year.
The DomainSure seal on your website and even on your parked, unused domains signal to these predators that you're no pushover. You've got industry experts behind you.
In conjunction with traditional threat detection, DomainSure name-based threat detection can up your game against hostile entities, providing advance knowledge of an impending attack or detecting one already in progress.
Our threat detection suite is three-fold:
We monitor your DNS environment (name servers, hostnames, DNSSEC signatures and chain-of-trust), IP addresses and analyze for vulnerabilities, weaknesses, anomalies and breaches.
We actively comb the wider web, the dark-web, for "chatter" and other signs of impending or ongoing hostilities against your names.
We operate a global array of DNS sensors which can detect anomalous queries to your domains which can signal the early stages of an attempted penetration or attack.
Our Business Continuity offering derives directly out of our expertise in DNS and naming and is intended to provide the much needed (often overlooked!) compliment to your existing Disaster Recovery and continuity of operations plans.
Outsourcing DNS to external managed DNS providers is often a wise choice for a number of reasons. However every DNS provider is a logical Single Point Of Failure (SPOF) unto themselves.
Too often the DNS is largely forgotten after vendor selection, and when disaster strikes the vendor, it strikes you too!
DomainSure enables offsite zone backups, archival, and historical repositories of your critical zone data.
Combined with the ability to export your zones in numerous formats (bind, powerdns, nsd, tinydns and even proprietary formats like Amazon Route 53), this means you can drastically reduce the time required for migration to another vendor; or for bringing additional name server capacity online.
Even when dealing with very large portfolios consisting of thousands of DNS zones, you can be back online in minutes, instead of hours when that "unlikely" Black Swan event hits your key vendors.
Domainsure can also step in and pick up DNS for your domains instantly.
Managing domains becomes infinitly more complex as the number of zones, disparate TLDs, registrars, and myriad vendors increases.
The Domain Portfolio Audit
Overwhelmed by an unwieldy, fragmented domain portfolio? Domains slipping through the cracks? Lack of redudancy? Locked-in?
Too many organizations have no clear vision on how to implement anaming strategy across multiple departments, brands, subsidiaries, countries, namespaces.
After the DomainSure experts employ a 46 point inspection process across every domain in your organization's wheelhouse, a Comprehensive Domain Portfolio Audit is produced that will provide actionable clarity:
- Identification of weak points in your domain operations with exact step-by-step instructions to remedy
- An organization domain name cheat sheet which can quickly streamline communications and eliminate costly errors.
- Your Domain Doomsday Book. Imagine your domain registrar, DNS provider or other key vendor housing your most important domain name (or a few thousand of them) disappeared tomorrow (yes, it happens). Your organizations’ Domain Doomsday Book will contain everything you need to quickly and seamlessly shift all domain operations to an alternate vendor or Registrar.
