Take control of your domain and its DNS traffic
Improved security thanks to DNSSEC
Protection from DNS hijacking
If hackers get hold of your domain, they could redirect it to fraudulent or malicious websites, potentially allowing them to collect the credit card details of your users or to claim legal ownership of your domain.
Domain Guard counters these attacks and protects your DNS records. You can rest assured knowing that you're the only person in control of your domain and all the data connected to it.
Any changes to your domain and its records must go through an additional verification step where a security link is sent to your individual email address. Adding this step of confirmation, hackers and other third parties stand no chance of stealing your domain. The following changes will need confirming via the verification process:
- Contact information for your domain
- Automatic domain renewal settings
- Blocking of domain transfers
- Nameserver records
Authenticated proof of ownership
As long as you don't cancel your domain, we will auto-renew your contract. This way, you don't have to worry about your domain expiring unexpectedly.
Private domain registration makes sure that your Whois information is not visible to third parties. Domain Guard, however, protects you against hackers trying to access and alter your DNS records.
The service costs £5 for the 1st year and £15 for each year thereafter.
