Re: Identity theft
It's a good reminder that these new domains, in and of themselves, are not inherently secure, lorraine89. Humans still need to add basic protections and anonymizing features, like the ones you've suggested.

Identity theft
New domains are pretty much vulnerable to data theft. That is why it is important to deploy some good security software and hide your IP using a genuine vpn server like PureVPN.

online security
Great article. I always take extra caution in maintaining my online privacy and security. I deploy vpn server, purevpn, to maintain my online integrity and to avoid any type of scams and phishy threats.

Re: The Irony of It
Finally....some smarts about TLD's.  Exactly right, a new domain name is just another thing to block.  Making it harder to defend by adding extensions to block.  Ask people that fix pc's in the trenches and you will find that .biz, .casino,..etc... is just another way to launch a malware link to compromise a pc.  Malware can still use .security to launch randsomware for example.  duh...adding them does nothing for protection for anyone. The irony is right....lol

Does it really matter to have .com
Thanks, for the information on SSL. On other hand, recently I read an atricle which said it's no more important to have domain as .com it can be anything google no more consider much weightage on this domain scenario. I am planning to buy one as a web designer - let me know your thought's

Re: Worth a try
Yes agreed as well, one protection or measure is never enough.  I am looking at it more as an additional potential measure.

Re: Worth a try
Agreed, Juliette... but a simple domain in and of itself will not convey security on a website or its visitors. Regardless of what your domain is, there's plenty that still needs to happen on the backend to lock down and protect hardware, data and users.

Worth a try
I think it is worth a try.  But like anything unless 1. the enforcement of standards is done and 2. the false positive blocks are minimum, this will be a wasted effort.
