The Domain Name Monitor tracks all parts of your domain WHOIS record and instantly notifies you if we notice that something has changed from a previous value. This allows you to investigate and hopefully prevent any security breaches before they occur.

Notifications

Once configured, we regularly check the expiry date of your domain names and notify you using your preferred notification method starting at 30 days before the expiry date.

When the domain name has been renewed, the notifications stop and we then note the new date of expiry.

What is Domain Hijacking?

It’s important to be aware of the potential dangers surrounding your domain name – if an individual gains access to it they then have the power to redirect your traffic and take control of any email using that address.

Domain Hijacking is where a third party takes over your domain either through exploiting a vulnerability or social engineering and convincing the domain registrar to change the domain settings.

A common scenario for Domain hijacking is where a third party would change the name servers associated with your domain name in order to redirect your website users to another website.

This method is commonly used in Phishing attacks so that your users are tracked into entering the secure credentials to the untrusted and rogue site in order for the third party to further leverage these for financial gain.

SSL Certificate Monitoring

SSL Certificates provide encryption between the client and server and protect any sensitive data such as credit card details when sending data over the public Internet. These Certificates only last for a period of time and tracking the expiry date of these is yet another burden on your already busy work schedule.

Ensure Certificates Never Expire

Monitor your SSL Certificate expiry dates and prevent an unsecured checkout or authenticated area.

Users who visit areas of your site with an invalid certificate will see an error message in their browser – so guard against damage to your brand reputation by ensuring this doesn’t happen.

Protect Your Brand Against Phishing

A common strategy in phishing attacks is to hijack a domain and reissue a new certificate. Monitor for any changes – including expiry date and issuer – to guard against these attacks.

This extra monitoring of the certificate information provides an added layer of security to ensure that nothing has been changed.
