What is New Domain Name?

FraudLabs Pro will screen the email domain of a transaction to determine if this email was coming for a new domain or not. To explain further, if test@example.com was the email address supplied, then example.com was the email domain that will be used for the domain checking.

How’s FraudLabs Pro determine if it was a new domain? We used 60 days as the benchmark. Therefore, if an email domain existed less than 60 days, our system will mark it as Y (new domain). Otherwise, it will be N (old domain). If the email address was not supplied for our validation for some reason, you shall see the NA value. Please see the below images for details.

Please take note that the email domain only refers to the duration of an email domain existence. It doesn’t mean the duration of an email address since its creation.
