What is the Domain Name Surveillance Service?
DBS is a monitoring tool that alerts you whenever someone registers a domain name that is very like your brand name or your own domain name. Companies, organisations, government bodies and anyone else with a strong brand or reputation can benefit from using DBS. It also has great potential for anyone who runs a web shop or portal handling personal data or other valuable information. The service helps you protect your brand and your on-line reputation.
How does it work?
DBS flags up suspect .nl registrations in real time. Once every twenty-four hours, DBS also downloads the zone file of every other TLD that publishes one. The zone file is a data file that lists all the domain names in that TLD. A 'domain name spinner' is then used to comb the TLDs that don't publish zone files (most country-code domains). Through this unique combination of scanning methods, DBS is able to monitor every TLD in the world.
With its extended functionality, DBS provides outstanding protection against malicious domain name registrations. Want to find out more? Pim Pastoors would be happy to discuss the options with you. Contact him by mailing email@example.com or calling +31 657 045 407.
