FAQs

What is a domain takedown?

Domain takedown refers to the process of removing infringing domains from the Internet. When dealing with domain takedown manually and on an individual basis, this process can be extremely time-consuming, especially since scammers often use a range of techniques to evade enforcement efforts. Red Points’ domain takedown services scan domain databases to automatically detect and report fake domains before they hurt your brand.

How do I get rid of a fake domain?

Red Points’ domain takedown software can automatically get rid of fake domains by detecting, removing, and identifying domain portfolio gaps. Using our technology, you can detect incidents at scale on multiple platforms and report them immediately.

The detection process is carried out by bot-powered searches. These bots constantly crawl all sites, so that the platform works 24/7 and reflects up-to-date infringement data.
Once detected, infringements can be automatically validated based on automation rules or presented to the user in a visual format for confirmation. The validation process has been designed to be as efficient as possible, without losing accuracy.

Can a registrar take down a website?

Many registrars offer domain protection which prohibits the transfer, change, or deletion of your domain unless the registered owner explicitly grants permission by submitting a form. This prevents domain loss caused by malicious intent and is secured by identity proof or organizational vetting.

Depending on the registrar, there are different levels of protection available. They can range from hiding your contact information, installing a proxy email that filters other email requests, protection against hacking, or constant security monitoring against threats.

How do I report a malicious domain?

Red Points offers a comprehensive solution for reporting and removing malicious domains using bots, self-improving detection through machine learning, and automatic enforcements to significantly streamline the process of reporting fake domains.

How do I report a phishing domain?

A phishing domain usually has the name and appearance of an original website. These domains are created to duplicate legitimate businesses and trick customers into believing they are visiting the official website. The goal is to persuade unsuspecting customers to share their personal or financial details. Scammers may also want to sell counterfeit products through phishing domains. 

Phishing domains can also lead to data breaches and ransomware attacks, all of which can damage brand reputation and lead to loss of revenue. You can choose to report the phishing websites directly to Google, but that would only remove the websites from Google Search Results.

To remove the phishing websites from the whole Internet, you can adopt Red Points’ phishing takedown services which can automatically find and remove phishing sites that are trying to copy your brand. 

How do I find a phishing website?

Hackers are getting better and better at developing phishing websites that are hard to detect. These websites can successfully steal personal information of unsuspecting users. But that doesn’t mean, you can’t find phishing websites.

Here are some ways you can find phishing websites online in order to shut them down. 

  • Monitor your brand name online to look for any suspicious pages or websites that might be posing as your brand
  • Look for variations of your brand name in case scammers have resorted to typosquatting in order to avoid being detected
  • Ask your customers to report any suspicious links to you and inform them that your products are only available through authorized sellers 
  • Scan through incoming links coming to your website as sometimes phishing websites link to some of the pages of the original website in order to appear as genuine

The easiest way to find and remove phishing websites is by using one of the phishing site takedown services like Red Points which can automatically detect phishing domains and shut them down.

What are anti phishing techniques?

Anti-phishing techniques include countermeasures to help improve the overall business security and resist phishing attacks. 

Some of the basic anti-phishing techniques can include:

Secured website: You can adopt HTTPS instead of HTTP for an added security layer. 

Secured login: Further, you can also incorporate two-way authentication for everyone where users are required to enter their password and a code sent to their phones. This in turn prevents attackers from getting access to your website even when they find a legitimate login credential. 

Software updates: You should always keep your website as well as your company laptops updated with the latest firewalls to prevent phishing attacks and email spam

Fight against phishing threats: You can use a phishing takedown service like Red Points to shut down phishing websites as soon as they go live and mitigate any damage to your brand.

What is website phishing?

Website phishing is a type of fraud where a scammer replicates a reputable business or person to trick users into thinking they are on the original website. Phishing websites usually copy the same website layout and content as the original to confuse people. 

The goal of phishing can be to gain access to login details, and credit card information, or cause data breaches. Scammers may also be looking for a way to sell counterfeit products while making customers believe they are buying the original thing.

Scammers can also use techniques like blackhat SEO and aggressive advertising campaigns to get more users on their fake websites.
