DNS Abuse Institute changes name

The DNS Abuse Institute is rebranding around its flagship product in order to make its name shorter and less confusing, according to the organization.

It’s now called the NetBeacon Institute, after a free security service it launched two years ago, and its products are also being renamed accordingly.

The old NetBeacon service, a clearinghouse for DNS abuse reports, is now called NetBeacon Reporter. The old DNSAI Compass abuse metrics reporting service is now the NetBeacon Measurement and Analytics Platform.

“The old name was a bit long, generated confusion, and required explanation,” executive director Graeme Bunton said on social media.

It’s moved its internet presences from dnsabuseinstitute.org to netbeacon.org.

NetBeacon’s services are free and funded by .org registration fees collected by Public Interest Registry.
