losing customers from
reputational damage

Your domain name can be registered with prefixes and suffixes with the intent to cause damage to your online reputation.

clickbait or adwords website
with a similar domain

yourbusiness.co

Scammers put up a site under a similar domain name as yours, with a list of links displayed for the sole purpose of driving adwords revenue. This confuses your customers and damages your online reputation.

Your domain name can be registered with a different extension, and customers can visit the wrong site accidentally and become infected with malware.

phishing using a different
domain extension

yourbusiness.biz

Phishing scammers make websites that are identical to legitimate companies as a way to fraudulently obtain customer information.
