fTLD Study on Use of Redirection in .BANK

The .BANK registry produced a report about how redirections are used using ".bank" new domain names.

According to Jean Guillon:
This is the first part of a study and the Registry informs that results will be updated in the future. Did you know it is mandatory to use a SSL certificate with a ".bank" domain name?

Extract from the article:
"fTLD has completed its first study by assessing the 2,468 domains in the .BANK zone as of September 30, 2015. At that time 103 domains were redirecting with three (3) to another .BANK domain and 100 to a gTLD other than .BANK. Given the limited use of redirection at that time, there is insufficient data to warrant a change to fTLD’s current position of permitting redirection".
