Why do you need Domain Monitoring?

Put simply, to keep an eye on your brand name on the internet – your name is one of your most valuable business assets, don’t put it at risk!

Our Domain Monitoring service gives you full visibility of third parties registering your brand in domain names. Whilst these types of registration can be innocent, there are a number of malicious reasons for registration that you definitely want to prevent:

  • Competitor A competitor registering your brand to redirect traffic to their own website(s)
  • Scammer A scammer registering your domain with a common typo to make money from your brand name
  • Fraudster A fraudster registering a direct match of your domain name to be used in a phishing attack

Irrespective of why the registration has taken place, knowledge is power and with Domain Monitoring you’d be in the know immediately, allowing you to take any action needed.

Whatever stage your business is at in terms of growth, having intelligence on-hand when it comes to the visibility of your trademark or brand is crucial and enables you to make fast, strategic decisions about your domain portfolio.

What our customers say

Simba

Focusing on growth and establishing a global presence, the team behind Simba quickly realised that managing an international domain name portfolio was an increasingly complex, time-consuming challenge that couldn't be treated as a secondary priority. The team helped us determine our domain acquisition strategy, consolidate and secure our domain portfolio, and they handle the renewals and updates as required - so we don’t have to worry about it!

Ecotricity

A few years ago, we consolidated our domain name portfolio of 400+ domains after losing a few to the manual renewal process at one of our registrars. They say don't put all your eggs in one basket, but when it comes to domain names it actually makes more sense to. The 'basket' we chose was a managed account and we've never looked back.

Direct Ferries

As an International business, having expert advice on hand, quickly, is the biggest benefit of having a managed domain portfolio. Whether we're looking to move into new territories, to acquire or dispute domains or need a brand audit, it's great to have someone we trust there to do it all for us. If you want to protect your domain investment, we can't recommend these guys highly enough.

Countryside Properties

We regularly need new domain registrations including DNS set up so it's great to have a team to rely on for help. From the outset they executed a smooth transfer-in plan and are always happy to give relevant guidance on brand protection and new gTLD releases whenever we need it, at no extra cost. The overall service gives us peace of mind, and it doesn't break the bank!

Swallowfield

Knowing our domains are protected and under one roof means we can focus on other areas of our business. Nothing is too much trouble for our Account Manager, she works through every step with us and explains and advises along the way. For any business looking to consolidate and manage domain names effectively, their domain management service is a must.

Alamy

The brand protection team has given us complete peace of mind when handling our domain portfolio. They provide brand auditing, suggest brand protection coverage that is relevant to our industry, and advise us on placing our trademarks into the Trademark Clearinghouse when necessary. Their friendly managers support us whilst our business grows. Their service comes highly recommended.

Aldermore

To improve our clients' experience, we decided to migrate our domains to the Domain Name Management team. Whether it is to discuss changing a website's time to live level to improve its update response time, discuss the complexities of sender policy framework or how to protect our brand from copycat sites and domains, they always give excellent advice and service.
