New Website and New URL Coming Soon!
We are excited to announce we'll be launching a new website and switching our URL over to .bank in the next few weeks. This will provide you with an even more secure banking experience.
We're Launching a New Website
It's been months in the making, but we are excited to finally announce we will launch a new website that will give you a better banking experience. The change is coming soon; we know you'll love the new look and features as much as we do.
We're also switching our URL. What does that mean to you?
We will transition to redstone.bank from our redstonebankco.com domain to provide you with an even more secure banking experience. When we switch to .BANK, all visits to redstonebankco.com will be automatically redirected to redstone.bank. We will also switch over our email addresses from our redstonebankco.com addresses to our new redstone.bank addresses. While website redirection and email forwarding will remain in place for the foreseeable future, you should take a moment after our launch to update your bookmark(s) to our site and any email addresses in your address book.
Our new .BANK domain helps to prevent phishing attacks against our employees, customers, and vendors by providing a visual identification cue for our emails and websites. Going forward, you should authenticate our emails and website(s) simply by looking for ".bank" (rather than .com) at the end of our email addresses and at the end of our URL.
If it's not .bank it's not us.
The security of your assets and information continues to be our top priority, we love being your bank, knowing the needs of our communities and our clients, while ensuring you have the security you'd expect from a much bigger bank. Once our new website and new URL go live, we'll notify our clients of the switch, stay turned!
Now, you might have more questions. Hopefully, this helps.
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com which anyone can purchase, .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 by fTLD, the .BANK administrator, 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.
With the '.BANK' visual authentication cue in place, you can quickly confirm emails and websites of ours are real, and avoid interactions that could lead to identity theft and financial fraud. This authentication is also an additional layer of protection for internal and vendor communications, helping to secure against potential breaches.
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 clients 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 when the switch to .BANK happens?
Our email addresses and website URL will soon end in .BANK. Once we make the switch, before interacting with emails from us and before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look for the .BANK to authenticate the email or website is ours.
Our .com email addresses will be forwarded to our new .BANK email addresses and our .com website will redirect to our new .BANK sit, but over time you should update your address book and bookmarks 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. We decided it was a priority for us to enhance our security and provide our clients with an easy way to authenticate our email communications and website.
