DBS (Domainname Surveillance Service)

Your brand name and reputation are an important good that you want to protect optimally. Today, protection is not only necessary offline, but especially online. In collaboration with SIDN, Serverion offers the Domain Name Surveillance Service (DBS).

Why DBS?
Suppose you have recently started a business. You have registered a good, catchy brand name and a matching domain name. You think nobody can take it away from you anymore. However, if your domain name is not guarded, third parties can abuse the reliability of your brand. This form of abuse can damage the reliability of your brand and often forms the start of phishing attacks, where (personal) data is confiscated via a fake website.

What is DBS?
Domain name monitoring service (DBS) helps you to monitor domain name registrations that closely resemble your brand name. DBS is a monitoring service with the aim of detecting typosquatting and trademark infringement on the internet. Typosquatting is a form of internet abuse based on the fact that internet users sometimes make mistakes when typing in a website or email address. DBS uses a direct link to the database of all .nl domain names, so that all .nl typosquats around your brand name are checked in real time.

You then send us the form and a Chamber of Commerce extract (companies) or Copy ID proof (natural person). If everything is correct, we will send the documents to SIDN. SIDN will call you to check whether the request is correct. After this, your domain name will be given the status limited.

When does .nl Control stop?
.nl Control stops automatically when you cancel your domain name or when you transfer your domain name to another holder. You can stop .nl Control yourself via your registrar. Your registrar has a form for this.

Dropcatching .NL

With .nl domain names, the whois information can be used to request the time at which the domain name is released. The SIDN releases the domain name within 1 hour after the specified time. Our Drop catch method means that a very high frequency is checked to see whether the domain name has already been released, and if so, an attempt is made to register the domain name very quickly. Certainly with popular domain names where multiple parties want the domain name, it can be difficult to register.

Extra costs for registering a .nl domain name when released from quarantine are: € 10. In addition to these drop catch costs, the usual domain registration costs are also due. No costs are charged if the domain name cannot be registered.
