Is your domain name is safe

Before answering this question, and how you can make your domain safe, first of all I think you must understand…”What is domain hacking”..So, have a look.

Domain name means website name or identity of your site or internet like yahoo, gmail, rediffmail etc. When we create our mail id it is made up of two names, one is username and next is your domain name, on which you have created your mail id. For eg.sonakshigupta@yahoo[dot]com is the e-mail address which comprises username- sonakshigupta and domain name- yahoo. We have seen the names of website like yahoo, Google, hotmail etc., all are the names of site or you can say URL (Uniform resource locator) of site, we can also say that these are the domain name.

Domain hacking states the hacking of the contents of your website or domain by hackers, leading to misuse of the site by unknown, which create several problems for the owner of the website like leakage of confidential information which affect the efficiency of your business.

According to Wikipedia Domain hacking is defined as

A domain hack is an unconventional domain name that combines domain levels, especially the top-level domain (TLD), to spell out the full “name” or title of the domain. In this context, the word hack denotes a clever trick (as in programming), not an exploit or break-in (as in security).

Now to answer the question given above, you also understand that your domain name is not 100% safe but by adopting several ways, we might make our domain or website 80% safe from hackers.
