Managing domain names, web servers, DNS-servers and SSL-certificates for one of Sweden’s largest banks.

THE MISSION

THE MISSION

Landshypotek needed our help in consolidating its domain portfolio, to prevent infringement of important wording through registration of domain names.

PORTS GROUP’S CONTRIBUTION

PORTS GROUP’S CONTRIBUTION

We began a close collaboration with Landshypotek to create a robust online protection to prevent, among other things, cybersquatting and typosquatting and thus infringement of important wording with registration of domain names. We also started a collaboration focused on advanced hosting services such as DNSSEC and provides a number of SSL certificates for Landshypotek's various domains and operates their website on a virtual server.

THE RESULT

THE RESULT

Through a strategic and proactive partnership, we manages Landshypotek's domains, SSL certificates, DNSs and operates their web server. We have made sure to eliminate, among other things, the risk that a user can temporarily hijack a domain name and redirect traffic to another server and ensure that several of Landshypotek's domains are protected by encryption.

”All co-operation is built on trust. Ports Group has always met our highest expectations, and proactively offered solutions for a cost-effective and secure online presence for Landshypotek Bank.”

Landshypotek Bank

This is what we do for Landshypotek Bank:

  • SSL certificatation
  • DNS management
  • Hosting web server

The journey that Landshypotek made together with us started in 2003 when Landshypotek chose to consolidate its domain portfolio with the help of us. Since then we have worked together to create a robust online protection to prevent cybersquatting and typo squatting, i.e. infringements of important wordings through registration of domain names. Domain names are also continually directed to the main page landshypotek.se.

In 2010 we also started a collaboration focused on advanced hosting services such as DNSSEC, which eliminates the risk that a user can temporarily hijack a domain name and redirect traffic to another server. We also provides SSL certificates for Landshypotek. SSL is a security mechanism used to encrypt communication between two units; usually between a web server and a website visitor. The value of encrypting data between units is that others in the network, (usually the Internet), are able to intercept or manipulate information. We has also operated Landshypotek’s website on a dedicated virtual server since 2011.
