.SECURE Registry Information
What is the .secure domain name?
The .secure domain name is a new top-level domain (TLD) that was released in September 2017. It is specifically designed for businesses and organizations that need to protect their online data and communications.
How can the .secure domain name help protect my business?
The .secure domain name can help protect your business by providing an extra layer of security for your online data and communications. It can also help you build trust with your customers by demonstrating that you take data security seriously.
Registrants of .secure domain names are required to provide an email address, phone number, and organization name.
The contact information is checked against watchlists of known bad actors around the world before the registration is complete. This extra step gives added confidence that both parties in an email or web transaction are who they say they are.
One benefit this adds for businesses conducting online transactions (e-commerce) is increased trust between buyer and seller by way of enhanced authentication procedures.
A good example would be two companies doing business with each other repeatedly over time; an account relationship has formed because there's more at stake if it doesn't go well. In this case, a mutually established identity will have been created through the need for prompt resolution when problems arise.
What types of businesses and organizations should consider the .secure domain name?
Any business or organization that needs to safeguard its online data and interactions can benefit from a .secure domain.
The enhanced authentication procedures offered through the registration process mean added confidence in both parties when conducting business via email, web transactions, etc., as well as peace of mind for those sharing sensitive information such as medical records, bank account details, or donor information.
One example would be banks who already verify customer identities with questions specific to that individual account holder; now those same verification procedures could be applied to protecting an entire corporate client base at scale without having to reinvent the wheel.
What are some of the features of the .secure domain name?

What is required to purchase a .secure domain name?
To secure your company's online identity, your business must meet certain criteria before you can register the .secure TLD.
