Good idea to help limit phishing attacks



I saw this a few weeks back and think it’s a good idea. Essentially why don’t we have a .bank domain registration and limit it to just financial institutions the way .gov is limited to government registrations. (and .mil for military, .edu for educational institutions…..) Let’s face it, anyone can register a .com .net or .org – maybe instead of increasing the number of Top level domains that ANYONE can register in, maybe we need to tighten the restrictions and add a few new TLD’s that would be more closely restricted. There’s already a .museum, .bank would be a good one next.
