We’re Converting to .BANK!

Why a .BANK domain

  • .BANK replaces open domains, like .com (which can be purchased by anyone, for any reason) and quickly authenticates that the website or email is legitimately from a bank. You can interact with confidence when you see the ‘.BANK’ at the end of an email address or website URL.
  • Banks must undergo a multi-step verification and authentication process to obtain a .BANK domain, ensuring bad actors can’t get .BANK domains to use in phishing and spoofing cyberattacks.
  • Banks must set up multiple layers of cybersecurity requirements, which are continuously monitored, to use their .BANK domain, ensuring the bank has enhanced security against the most common cyberattacks impacting the bank and its customers.

Frequently Asked Questions About .BANK

For security purposes our NEW website URL will end in ‘.BANK’ instead of ‘.com’; look for the ‘.BANK’ before interacting with our new website. Eventually, our emails will also be converted to .bank in the very near future.

What is .BANK?

.BANK is a gated domain, like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be purchased by anyone, .BANK quickly verifies that the website is verified to be our bank, so you can proceed with confidence when you see the ‘.BANK’ at the end of our website URL.

How is .BANK more secure?

All banks are verified and authenticated by fTLD, the .BANK administrator, prior to registering their .BANK domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK domain is an eligible organization. Hackers and bad actors can’t get a .BANK domain to create lookalike domains for phishing and spoofing, as they can in ‘.com’ and other publicly available domains.

With the ‘.BANK’ visual authentication cue in place you can quickly confirm that any emails and websites of ours are real, and avoid interactions that could lead to identity theft and financial fraud. This authentication is also an additional layer of protection for internal and vendor communications, helping to secure against potential breaches.

All banks within the .BANK domain must also implement additional Security Requirements to help secure their sites and email, and protect them, their vendors and their customers from phishing, spoofing and other cyberattacks. All banks using .BANK are monitored for compliance with these security requirements on an ongoing basis.

You’re the first ‘.BANK’ I’ve seen, why haven’t all the other banks moved?

The move to .BANK is a business decision every bank must make, and plan for, based on its priorities and resources. We decided it was a priority for us to enhance our security and provide our customers with an easy way to authenticate our website, and eventually our email communications.

Do I need to do anything differently after you become .BANK?

Upon launch of our new website, our website URL will end in .BANK.

The next step will be changing all our emails over to end in .bank. This will take some time to convert all our employee emails and we will communicate this to you when they have been complete. From then on, before interacting with emails from us, and before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look for the ‘.BANK’ to authenticate the email or website is ours.

Our .com website will redirect to our new .BANK site, but over time you should update your address book and bookmarks that you frequently use for our site, such as logging into SmartLink or BizLink online banking.

What happens if I have bookmarked and try to access clearmountainbank.com?

We suggest that you change any bookmarks when the new site launches. If you type clearmountainbank.com into your browser, you will automatically be redirected to clearmountain.bank. This serves as your assurance that you have landed on the correct site.
