Protect your website even if your username and password are compromised

Today, Network Solutions protects customers against unauthorized transfers, DNS changes and other configuration changes that could harm a website. So long as the username and password are secure the account is protected. Unfortunately, utilizing a simple username/password combination has proven insufficient for all businesses and Domain Hijackers continue to steal usernames and passwords for both large and small companies. This is a very real threat, with real financial impact.

WebLock starts with the assumption that user credentials can be easily compromised through systems and processes outside of Network Solutions' control and that the domains must be protected even in the event of such a compromise.

WebLock is designed to help protect your website even if your username/password is compromised.

Ways Domain Credentials Are Compromised

WebLock Protects Your Domain

WebLock starts with the assumption that user credentials can be easily compromised through systems and processes outside of Network Solutions’ control and that the domains must be protected even in the event of such a compromise. And while there is no one sure way to guard against every potential security breach, by deploying a mix of proven techniques and processes, the threat of a security breach can be greatly minimized.

It Can Happen to Businesses of All Sizes

Domain Hijackers have stolen usernames and passwords for both large and small companies. This is a very real threat, with real financial impact.

Over the last year, hijacked domain names have created significant brand, reputational and financial damage to impacted companies. Once a domain name is compromised, cybercriminals have total control of the content that appears on "your" website. In many cases objectionable content is posted or phishing sites are established whereby your customers' private information can be exploited.
