Hostway Launches Domain Name Protection Product

Web host and domain name registrar Hostway announced it has released DomainGuard, a new product designed to protect its customers from losing domain names to hijackers or having domain name control fall into the wrong hands.

Many of the simple, easy-to-remember domain names are already registered, heating up the competition for those that are left. Once you secure your perfect name, it's important to make sure no one can take it away from you.

DomainGuard issues domain name owners a unique password. When someone attempts to edit settings or transfer a protected domain name, a DomainGuard page prompts the user to enter the password. No changes may be made until the correct password is entered, ensuring only the original owner can authorize changes.

DomainGuard protects domains from accidental or malicious changes to:

  • DNS settings
  • Subdirectory changes
  • Domain name aliases
  • WhoisProtector
  • Nameserver changes
  • Domain authorization codes
  • And more

DomainGuard costs only $4.95 per domain per year and is available at
