Introducing our new .BANK website!
We’re excited to unveil a refreshed brand that captures what we love most—taking care of you! While our commitment to community and exceptional customer service has been around for 190+ years, our new brand helps us illustrate it better than ever. Not only do we have a new look, but we’ve also launched an entirely new website! It’s purposefully built to make your life easier and loaded with new features that meet all your online banking needs. You may have noticed that our URL changed from www.BankNH.com to www.BNH.Bank. Continue reading to learn more!
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain, like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be purchased by anyone, .BANK quickly verifies that the website or email is authentically from our bank, so you can interact with confidence when you see the ‘.BANK’ at the end of our email address and website URL.
How is .BANK more secure?
All banks are verified and authenticated, prior to registering their .BANK domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK domain is an eligible organization. Hackers and bad actors can’t get a .BANK domain to create lookalike domains for phishing and spoofing, as they can in ‘.com’ and other publicly available domains.
All banks within the .BANK domain must also implement additional Security Requirements to help secure their sites and email, and protect them, their vendors and their customers from phishing, spoofing and other cyberattacks. All banks using .BANK are monitored for compliance with these security requirements on an ongoing basis.
Do I need to do anything differently now that you’re .BANK?
Look for the .BANK in all of our emails and on our website to know you’re communicating and interacting with us.
Our .com email addresses are forwarding to our new [email protected] email addresses, and our .com website redirects to our new .BANK site, but over time you should update your address book and bookmark for our site.
You’re the first ‘.BANK’ I’ve seen, why haven’t all the other banks moved?
The move to .BANK is a business decision every bank must make, and plan for, based on its own priorities and resources. At Bank of New Hampshire, we decided it was a priority for us to enhance our security and provide our customers with an easy way to authenticate our email communications and website so we’ve made the move to .BANK.
Our commitment to our customers hasn’t changed over the years, but we figured our brand (and website) probably could use an update. It’s more than just a new brand—it’s the story of the people and passion that makes us different from any other bank.
