DOMAIN

MONITORING

Scammers are getting more and more sophisticated in their quest to spoof your brand. We can help.

PROTECTING YOUR DOMAIN

Take control of your online presence

Your brand’s website is your online shopfront and what most customers will encounter when considering a purchase. Unfortunately, domain fraud is increasingly common, and can divert traffic from your website, while denting your revenues and reputation. We find domains that abuse your brand – and take them down.

TYPES OF DOMAIN FRAUD

Domain fraud can take many forms. Here are some of the most common types we monitor and enforce daily:

{{$text}
Cybersquatting

This is where someone, in bad faith, has registered a domain name that is already a trademark belonging to another brand. For example, registering under a different suffix of your main website such as “.org” or “.net”.

{{$text}
Typosquatting

Typosquatting (also known as URL hijacking) is a type of social engineering attack where a domain is registered under a common misspelling of your brand name, in order to divert traffic and mislead consumers.

{{$text}
Clone site scams

This is where your registered trademarks, such as your brand or product name, is used in a fake domain – often in combination with added words like “online” or “shop”, in order to mislead the customer into thinking the website is genuine.

HOW CAN FRAUDULENT DOMAINS HARM YOUR BUSINESS?

Your domain name and official site are precious assets that can be severely de-valued when copied online. It’s essential to the growth and success to your online business.

Without sufficient protection, you can face:

Diverted traffic

These illegitimate sites can steal search traffic away from your business.

Diverted revenue

Fake websites lure your customers away by using your branding and tempting them with bargain prices.

Damaged reputation

Customers receiving low quality products, or being scammed out of their hard earned money may complain to your legitimate business and leave bad reviews.

Customer harm

Your customers can be robbed of their money, and may also receive low quality goods that have been manufactured cheaply and illegally.
