Against all hacking attempts, lock your domain name
Your domain name, the associated website and Internet services, are your first window to the public. A target of choice for cybercriminals.
As the news have proved it many times, domain names hijackings are more and more frequent and there are many examples (NYTimes.com hijacked towards a page of the SEA – Syrian Electronic Army -, Twitter, BBC, etc.). In most cases, a simple Registry lock could prevent any hijacking.
The hacking method is simple: the cybercriminals steal the access codes to the management platform or hack it, and request to the registry a modification, for example, a DNS change. Then, the hackers only have to point the domain name towards the page of their choice.
That’s why, a simple lock at the registry level is needed to block all attempts of hijacking, even if your accesses are hacked, since the registry lock will prevent any modification without prior authentication.
Lock the authenticity and the integrity of your data with SSL certificates.
Your data and your customers ‘data are precious. Only an adapted SSL certificate ensures integrity and authenticity.
A SSL certificate ensures:
- Data authenticity
- Data integrity
- Encrypting data
A SSL certificate verifies the legitimacy of your website or your business online and provides an encrypting. It ensures that the information sent between your website and the Internet user is secured and remains private.
The SSL experts of Nameshield identify with you the names that should carry a SSL certificate and optimize their acquisition by proposing the right certificate adapted to your needs.
