    • The following for-profit and not-for-profit businesses or organizations are initially eligible to register domain names in .BANK:
      • 3.1 State, regional and provincial banks that are chartered and supervised by a government regulatory authority;
      • 3.2 Savings associations that are charted and supervised by a government regulatory authority;
      • 3.3 National banks that are chartered and supervised by a government regulatory authority;
      • 3.4 Associations whose members are primarily comprised of entities identified above in 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3;
      • 3.5 Groups of associations whose members are primarily comprised of associations identified above in 3.4;
      • 3.6 Service providers that are principally owned by or predominantly supporting regulated entities identified above in 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3. (if approved by the Registry Operator Board); and
      • 3.7 Government regulators of chartered and supervised banks or savings associations or organizations whose members are primarily comprised of such government regulators (if approved by the Registry Operator Board).
      • Insurance holding companies are not eligible as they do not fit the definition of a bank nor do they provide banking services. If the bank holding company believes they need to be listed in the registration, they can for example be listed as the admin contact. Please do not submit any requests in this format as they will be rejected.
  • DomainPinLock is required as multi factor authentication and will be set on AddDomain. It is NOT possible to deactivate DomainPinlock. Instead of SMS, E-Mail authentication will be used, the token will be sent to the registrant's email address. Changes to the domain can only be performed, when a valid token is provided!
  • .insurance domains must use .insurance nameservers (e.g. ns1.insurancename.insurance)
  • DNSSEC required
  • Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) required
  • encryption required for web access, mail exchange and file transfer
  • full list of .insurance security requirements
  • possibility to add domains without nameservers

Please carefully review the .insurance Registrant Eligibility Policy and Security Requirements before submitting requests to avoid inconveniences for all involved in the registration process and most importantly your customer. If the eligible banking entity provides these types of services itself along with its banking services then the registration is permissible. If however these services are provided by separate legal entities that are not eligible for domains in .insurance (e.g. mortgage broker, equipment leasing company, investment firm), then the registration is not permissible.
