This holistic, cooperative approach provides an unprecedented level of online security, effectively shielding both businesses and individual users from a variety of common threats.

How NameBlock's AbuseShield Prevents DNS Abuse

Abusive registrations is a real threat that affects businesses, entrepreneurs, and individuals worldwide. That's why we've developed AbuseShield, a proactive solution to nip this kind of DNS abuse in the bud before it can cause damage.

AbuseShield employs NameBlock's specialized algorithm leveraging years of abuse data history and trends to create an "Abuse Variant List." This list includes variations of a given domain—think common misspellings, abuse suffixes, or visually similar characters—and automatically blocks a number of names within the same TLD as the original domain name registration. The result? A dramatic reduction in the time, money, and effort your anti-abuse teams need to invest in keeping the internet a safer place.

How BrandLock Provides Targeted Protection Across the Web

When it comes to online brand protection, details matter. That's why we created BrandLock—a specialized service that blocks domains identical to your Block Label across one or multiple top-level domains (TLDs).

BrandLock operates under strict guidelines to ensure maximum effectiveness. Block Labels must meet certain criteria, such as character count and formatting, to qualify and is run through several checks before it gets applied. Once activated, any identical domain name searches will result in a straightforward message from Registrars: the domain is simply not available for registration. It's not a premium offering, it's not on the aftermarket; it's exclusively yours, safeguarded by BrandLock.
