A .INSURANCE domain is so much more than a really great marketing tool. Consider your current domain name. Does it reflect what you do? Does it help you acquire new customers? Is it memorable? A .INSURANCE domain quickly informs potential customers as to who and what you are, differentiating you from competitors and across the internet.
BUT…this is simply icing on the cake, it isn’t why you should make the move to a .INSURANCE domain.

Bad actors cannot get a .INSURANCE domain from which to phish and spoof your customers, protecting your organization and customers from the #1 cyberattack. Further, fTLD requires compliance with a set of Registrant Security Requirements that are not mandated by the operators of other commercially available internet domains. Additionally, the fTLD Operations Pledge outlines the policies and procedures we and our registrars must follow to ensure the secure, stable and reliable operations of the .INSURANCE domain.
You can forward all traffic and emails from your current site to your new .INSURANCE domain by using a domain redirect. A redirect brings all current site traffic and emails through to your new domain so no one is left behind, enabling you to educate your customers about your move to a more secure domain over time. While there are many ways to redirect visitors to a .INSURANCE domain, an effective method to do this while maintaining your search engine ranking is by using the http ‘301 Moved Permanently’ response status code. Your .INSURANCE domain name must meet the HTTPS requirement by having a public key certificate installed to secure the domain name.
