Moniker launches DomainMaxLock

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Registrars

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.

I’ve been getting an annoying request each week – diff. registrar…
asking me to authorize the transfer of Apr15.com

tax deadline in usa — April 15

so far none of he registrars will tell WHO initiates the transfer
requests… whoever it is is wasting their time… but would
be interesting to find out who the dweeb is…

there’s always losers around that have nothing better to do…
