Identity Digital offers a Registry Lock service

The Identity Digital registry, which manages more than 270 TLDs (.info, .digital, .pro, .services…), is now offering a Registry Lock service.

Registry Lock is a security device that protects domain names against hijacking attacks. This device blocks DNS modifications, transfers and deletions of domain names, to guarantee their security. Once this mechanism is activated, all future modifications must be authenticated via a secure multi-step process between Identity Digital and Gandi.

Registry Lock therefore prevents a third party from accessing the domain name registration data and diverting it to a fraudulent site by modifying the DNS, for example. This type of attack can have serious consequences for the registrant’s image, trust, turnover and confidential or strategic data.

This service is available at a cost of US$340 (€300) excluding VAT.

Please contact your account manager for more information.
