Does all of your domain traffic get to your web site?
With the fast paced evolution of the internet technologies and the driving need
for businesses to be profitable, now has come the time to ask the question: Am
I getting the optimum service from my DNS provider? More internet companies are
adopting a "Traffic" model where pay per click on internet traffic significantly
boosts their bottom line. If your DNS service is provided by anyone other than
yourself, do you know that every customer that clicks to your site or types your
web address in their browser actually shows up at your site?
Recently ICANN changed whois verification policies which require registrars to
verify contact information on domains. If you change your email address or other
required data you are given 15 days to verify the change through the process
proviced by your registrar. If you mis-typed your email address you will never
receive the verification notice to complete the process. As a result your domain
will probably end up parked on another page and your website is dead. Our service
will notify you if your website changes under these conditions.

Enter DNS Cop. We will monitor your domain's
DNS and log how your addresses are served. If any hits are re-routed we will
capture the data and take a snapshot of the site that your traffic was re-routed
to so that you can see historical patterns. We can't guarantee that every occurance
will be caught but eventually DNS Cop will catch the theft if it is occurring or let
you know that your domain is routed to a parking page.
What you do as a result is up to you. If only one hit is scraped from your site a month,
that lost visitor would most likely be more than enough to pay the service fee for monitoring
your traffic. How much would you lose for only one lost sale or contract.
Note: if the resulting page for your URL uses frames to another site
or presents dynamic content, the monitoring service may provide false
positives which make it appear that your site is being redirected when it's not.
