According to a press release going out tomorrow, Oversee.net’s public registrar Moniker has launched the DomainMaxLock Service. The new domain locking service is now available at an introductory rate of $34.99 per Domain Name Year which will later increase to $59.95.
The security measures put in place on a “MaxLock” domain are:
- Provide a government I.D. number for verification of your identity.
- Set-up custom security questions and answers, further safeguarding your domain assets.
- Provide special verification instructions and artifacts to ensure that your unique business or ownership interests are protected.
- When you request that your domains be unlocked, our security team works directly with you to verify all of the above off-line.
This is most likely just the start of a new suite of security related services we will be seeing in the Domain Name Market. Fabulous introduced additional security questions in addition to their “Executive Lock” and GoDaddy filed a patent for a system that automatically rejects domain transfers and launched their Deadbolt Transfer Protection for an annual fee of $24.99.
