In order to better serve their customers, FCBank today announced its adoption of a new website address, or domain, for its Internet operations – now FCBank.BANK.  .BANK is a new, more secure Internet domain for verified banks.  It is an easily identifiable channel for trusted communications between banks and their customers. 
 
Since the .BANK environment is exclusive to the banking industry, it provides a level of security unmatched in traditional Internet environments such as .COM.  The strict controls in place help to mitigate cyber security risk and allow FCBank to better protect its customers.
 
Only verified members of the banking community can have a .BANK domain.  In order to confirm that applicants are members of the global banking community, every application undergoes vigorous verification before it is registered.  This exclusivity offers a degree of safety that other commercial domains do not provide. 
 
“We are pleased to adopt the .BANK domain,” said Andy Dale, President of FCBank.  “The increased value of our new FCBank.BANK domain enables us to build a higher trusted environment for our customers and to provide another barrier against cybercrime.  When you see .BANK, you can rest assured that it is a legitimate bank website.”
 
Customers and website visitors do not need to take any action.  FCBank can be found online as they always have at www.FCBankOhio.com, but will automatically redirect to the new www.FCBank.bank URL. 
 
FCBank, a division of CNB Bank, is a $2.3 billion bank that has been and will continue to be developed in the Columbus area by local business people. The local decision-making provided at FCBank offers a high level of dedication and service to the communities within the Columbus and Central Ohio region.
