Financial Top Level Domains

Financial Top Level Domain Initiative

Visit fTLD's website

fTLD Registry Services, LLC’s (fTLD) mission is to secure generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) to enable verified members of the banking and insurance communities to meet the security, technology and business needs arising from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) introduction of new gTLDs.

Members of the banking and insurance communities and their respective stakeholders should have a voice in the future developments of gTLDs to meet institutional and consumer needs and ensure that new gTLDs are both trusted and secure.

fTLD is committed to operating gTLDs fairly, transparently, without undue preference and in the best interest of the communities and the consumers they serve.

fTLD submitted community-based applications for .BANK and .INSURANCE in 2012. fTLD was granted the right to operate .BANK on September 25, 2014, and .INSURANCE on February 19, 2015.
