The new .INSURANCE Internet web extension is the place for insurance providers and distributors to enhance and differentiate their online presence in the marketplace.

The following businesses or organizations are initially eligible to register domain names in .INSURANCE:

  1. Insurance companies regulated by a government authority (e.g., licensed, approved, certified);

  2. Licensed insurance agents/agencies, brokers/brokerages or other equivalents (e.g., intermediaries, representatives) regulated by a government authority;

  3. Associations whose members are primarily comprised of entities or individuals identified above in 1 or 2;

  4. Groups of associations whose members are primarily comprised of associations identified above in 3;

  5. Service providers that are principally owned by or predominantly supporting regulated entities identified above in 1 or 2 (if approved by the Registry Operator Board of Directors);

  6. Government regulators of insurance companies, agents/agencies, brokers/brokerages or other equivalents (e.g., intermediaries, representatives) or organizations whose members are primarily comprised of such government regulators (if approved by the Registry Operator Board of Directors).

fTLD requires compliance with a set of requirements that are not currently mandated by the operators of other commercially available gTLDs, including:

  • Mandatory Verification and Re-Verification of Licensure for Regulated Entities to ensure that only legitimate members of the global insurance community are awarded domain names.

  • Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) to ensure that Internet users are landing on legitimate websites and not being misdirected to malicious ones.

  • Email Authentication to mitigate spoofing, phishing and other malicious activities propagated through emails to unsuspecting users.

  • Multi-Factor Authentication by registry and registrars to ensure that any change to registration data is made only by authorized users of the registered entity.

  • Strong Encryption (i.e., TLS/SSL) to ensure security of communication over the Internet.

  • Prohibition of Proxy/Privacy Registration Services to ensure full disclosure of domain name registration information so bad actors cannot hide.

  • Domain Names must be hosted on .INSURANCE Name Servers to ensure compliance with all technical security requirements.
