Domain Name Zone Alerts

FreeYourID records hundreds of thousands of changes to the .com and .net zone file every day. In aggregate, these changes create a rich insight into what is happening with .com and .net. Companies concerned about phishing, online fraud, identity theft, and brand infringement may use the alerts to create rapid detection and response services. Registrars can subscribe to alerts about the domain names they manage to facilitate administration and improve customer service.

  • DNS update data helps companies address phishing, fraud, identity theft, and brand infringement.
  • More accurate local zone file lookups result in faster domain name availability checks.
There are two levels of service, depending on your needs:
  • Standard Service: Available to .com and .net registrars for the limited internal purpose of facilitating the administration of .com and .net domain name registrations.
  • Premium Service: Available to registrars as well as other interested parties for use in connection with, or as part of, certain value-added service offerings.
