What is .BANK?

.BANK is a trusted, verified, more secure and easily identifiable location on the Internet for the global banking community (i.e., banks, savings associations, trade associations and government regulators).

.BANK is a new domain where organizations can enhance their online presence and communicate with customers, banks and regulators.

.BANK was developed by the global banking community to serve and protect banks and will operate with enhanced security requirements that exceed those of most existing and new gTLDs.

Why should I register a .BANK domain?

.BANK is where financial services of the future will take place. If your organization is looking for a new, better and more innovative way to connect with customers, banks and regulators, .BANK can be that channel.

As a solution custom built for banks by banks and others in the financial services community, .BANK is unlike any other domain available to date. A .BANK domain signifies that your organization has been verified as legitimate and is committed to implementing security requirements that go beyond existing standards.

For more information on the enhanced security of a .BANK domain, please visit https://www.register.bank/security/.

fTLD, the operator of .BANK, will provide information to organizations to help guide their adoption of the new domain, whether .BANK replaces or is used alongside an existing domain, as well as how to communicate the change to customers. Some organizations may use the new address as a channel to communicate with customers, banks and regulators. How to take advantage of the benefits of .BANK is up to you.

All chartered and supervised banks and savings association are eligible to register domains in .BANK.

Most banks can register their domains starting on June 24, 2015. Banks with trademarks registered in ICANN's Trademark Clearinghouse are eligible to register .BANK domains starting on May 18, 2015, during the 30-day Sunrise period.

.bank Availability Information

Although we make every effort to ensure our availability checker is accurate, there is a possibility that we may show reserved/premium domains as available due to the early stage of roll out for this domain.

If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as reserved then we will unfortunately be unable to complete the registration and you will be provided a full refund.

If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as premium then you will have two options available to you:

  1. Pay the additional premium rate to secure your domain
