Third party registers or hosting managers without Cpanels or VPS or Editable Pages hackable?



  • If someone buys a domain and one may type the url in but just sees a template page from the register.com but doesn’t purchase a cpanel or VPS or rootacess or any way to edit the website, does the domain or website managed by a domain seller such as register.com require malware protection, spam detection or defacement protection or blacklist scanning related firewalls to prevent hijacking or hacking?

    Yes, but the register manages that for you. You have no control over any of those features.

    Assuming you just bought the domain and haven't yet pointed an A record at any IP address yourself, security of the template page is not your concern. What the registrar is doing is setting the A record to point to an IP that they own, running a server that they administer. If you don't want to risk that server getting hacked and people associating your domain with a hacked site, then you can remove the A record so the domain doesn't load until you have your server set up and are ready to use it.
