Frequently Asked Questions
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain, similar to .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be purchased by anyone, with .BANK which quickly verifies that the website is authentically from our bank, you can interact with confidence when you see the .BANK at the end of our 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 with .com and other publicly available domains.
Do I need to do anything differently now that you’re .BANK?
Our website URL now ends in .BANK. From now on, before interacting with our site, and before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look for the ‘.BANK’ to authenticate the website is ours. Our .com website redirects to our new .BANK site. Please be sure to update your bookmark for our .BANK site.
