How Domain Name Security Scan Works

The Webnames Corporate Domain Security scan helps businesses, IT managers and domain administrators automate a security scan of their domain portfolio and receive recommendations for risk mitigation.

The report analyzes publicly available data about your domain name, including registrant details in Whois records, EPP code status (which is required to transfer a domain), and HTTPS status to determine risk exposure.

To help you meet Domain security best practices, the scan also assesses whether Whois Privacy is enabled, and if the domain has enabled a combination of Registrar locks and Registry locks to protect against domain hijacking.

Assess all of your domain names to create a plan to strengthen security across your entire domain name portfolio.

Domain Security Risk Mitigation

The risk mitigation strategy for your domain name and broader domain portfolio will depend on the nature of threats detected in this report. Business critical domain names that are flagged vulnerable to domain hijacking risk should be protected with a registry lock while other domains that are in use but not critical can be protected by a combination of registrar lock and the Webnames account lock. In addition, all domain names should be secured with Whois privacy to protect registrant details.
