FAQ Quick Answers

Do we need to change from your DNS when using an external hosting solution?

You do NOT need to change DNS (if you use ours) when dealing with an external email or web hosting provider. Many hosting providers tell their customers to make a DNS change, but that is NOT necessary! We recommend not to let your hosting company manage your domain names (read this article why not)

Please request from your Hosting provider, which settings are required for your domain in order to activate your hosting. It is typical to create a CNAME or A-record in the DNS administration in your client account. (E.g. www.domain.xx => a record => 123.456.78.9 or www.domain.xx => cname => hosting.provider.xx). To set up email just create an MX record (Mail exchanger) for mail.domain.xx to the Host name of the mail server. Our redirect is a 302 which is the most search engine friendly.

All domain settings with European Domain Centre are free of charge.

Bank - bank


.Bank is live for banks. .Bank can only be registered by financial institutes. Only verified members of the banking community will be allowed to register a .bank.

Who is eligible for a .BANK domain?

Registrant Eligibility and particularly service providers: The registry is effectively permitting select service providers to obtain .BANK domain names to facilitate banking services at the behest of their banking clients. .BANK is not intended for entities that provide general services to banks (e.g., security, consulting) as well as a broad range of other industries. If the service provider's business is not almost exclusively for banks and in support of their provision of banking services, the entity is not eligible to have a .BANK domain. Bank holding companies and/or related entities to banks are currently ineligible to be the registrant for .BANK domain names.

How can I check that we are a verified member of the banking community?

The vetting process will be thorough and secure. For banks, insurance companies and agents/brokers/intermediaries, it will include charter and/or licensure verification through the applicant’s local and/or national regulators.

Which names can we select for our .BANK?

Name Selection: The Names Selection Policy states the domain name must correspond to the trademark, trade name or service mark of the entity. Further, the entity must be able to demonstrate its right to use the name for their domain name.
