When our new website launched on September 15, 2016, Franklin Savings Bank became one of the first banks in the country to upgrade to the newly launched .BANK web address.
.BANK is a trusted, verified, more secure and easily identifiable location on the Internet for the banking community and the customers it serves. We believe that the .BANK domain provides an additional layer of security that the other top level domains such as .com do not.
Who created the .BANK domain?
fTLD Registry Services, LLC was formed in 2011 by a coalition of banks, insurance companies and financial services trade associations, including the American Bankers Association. Registration for a .BANK web address began June 24, 2015 at which time Franklin Savings Bank was approved to acquire www.fsbnh.bank.
Why is .BANK more secure?
.BANK domains signify that a company has been verified as legitimate and is committed to implementing the additional and mandatory security requirements that go beyond existing standards. Only verified banks are eligible for a .BANK domain. Because of the additional security measures taken in the verification process, cybercriminals can be identified and denied the right to obtain a .BANK domain name. Therefore, the .BANK environment provides an enhanced level of security against imposter sites and peace of mind for our customers.
We take the security of our customer’s information very seriously and wanted to take this extra step to give our customers improved security when banking with us online. We encourage you to update any bookmarks or favorites you may have to our new website address: www.fsbnh.bank.
