FAQs About .BANK

What is .BANK?
You may have seen .GOV, .EDU, or .ORG extensions when browsing for a government, educational, or organization’s website. These extensions help identify what type of organization they are. The .BANK domain is similar in that it can only be attained by verified banks.

What happens to the .COM website and .COM email addresses?
Our old .COM URL will forward to our new .BANK website for a period of time and then eventually the URL will be retired.

For now our emails will remain as, but they will transition to in the future for added protection. We will let you know when that is going to happen.

How is .BANK more secure?
To acquire a .BANK domain, a bank must complete an authentication and verification process required by fTLD Registry Services which is the .BANK domain administrator. With Mission Bank moving to .BANK, financial fraud can be avoided because hackers and fraudsters can’t get a .BANK domain to create a look-alike website.

Banks that have the .BANK domain must implement additional security requirements to ensure their sites are safe for customers. They must also monitor these security requirements on an ongoing basis.

Why doesn’t every bank have a .BANK domain?
Going from a website extension of .COM to .BANK is not required for banks. It is a business decision each bank makes. Mission Bank decided to move to a .BANK domain to help our customers identify our website for their protection.
