What Are Newly Registered Domains?

Newly-registered domains (NRDs) are those registered for the first time by a registrant. NRDs are novel to the Domain Name System (DNS) and do not have a historical footprint or previous domain owners.

Practical usage

Useful tool for domainers and registrars

Useful tool for domainers and registrars

  • Keep track of new domains to study domain TLDs trends and determine new niches that are becoming popular. NRD insights can give you a deeper understanding of the domain registration space.
  • Get an updated list of just expired domains including valuable ones as soon as they get dropped. The list may also include malicious domains that you should avoid purchasing.
  • Identify domains that still have an extensive history of backlinks to them. Backlinks can help drive traffic to the domain, making it handy for advertisers and site owners looking to make money from the content produced.

Helps with security research

  • Threat investigators can use the newly registered domains feed to discover malicious domains since malicious actors like to use newly registered URLs for malevolent activities like malware hosting and phishing campaigns.
  • Security analysts use newly registered/dropped domains to update their existing WHOIS database for cyber security analysis and fraud detection and to take proactive action against suspicious domains.
  • Law enforcement agents can screen all newly-registered and recently-expired domains easily for ties to ongoing malicious activities and possible criminal networks behind them as indicated by WHOIS information.
  • Newly registered suspicious domains, such as those looking like they were created using domain generation algorithms (DGAs), can also be correlated with other sources of intelligence like malicious IP addresses.
